So far, from a walking point of view, I am on target, but not sure I am going to make my goal of walking 35 miles this week. So far I’ve done where between 25 – 26. This means I have to do ten miles over the weekend. I reckon I can easily do six. Those remaining 4 will take a bit more effort, and we have no plans so I don’t know when I am going to fit them in – I will try though.
Today’s picture was taken on the lunchtime walk. Whilst strolling along the esplanade (it’s not a promenade. Here’s a definition from Google; Esplanade and promenade are sometimes used interchangeably, but that is a mistake. A promenade can be anywhere, and it is exclusively for walking, while an esplanade is for walking but also can include large boulevards or avenues with cars.
At the bottom of the Haslar Marina Pier Wall there’s a name plate; Esplanada de Royan. Royan being a coastal town in the South of France. I’ll perhaps look at the twinning later.
I’d be willing to debate whether it is ether a promenade or an esplanade, mainly because any vehicle access (apart from maintenance) is to the tower blocks, and not along the entire length of the walkway. In my mind anyway, it’s a Prom.
Back to the birds, There were a couple sat on the land-side and the birds were all lined up waiting for them to drop food, or feed. I took the photo, not realising that I had caught the one flying through. I like the picture.
