599 – The Walking Week

It has been an interesting week for walking. I managed ego clock up just over 36 miles, so I’m quite pleased with that. I’ve changed my route a couple of times to include the high street at different times. For example, I generally walk down the half of the high street at around ten past six in the morning. Unsurprisingly, at that time of the morning, there is not a lot happening. Usually, it’s just Greggs that is open, and they even have their table and chair sets out for use.

I didn’t want to miss the Cockle Ponds, so I still go past them, but then, instead of carrying on up South Street, I went back the western end of the high street and walked it’s length – twice, turning around at the ferry terminal and returning adding a little bit more to ensure that I got my morning’s 3 miles.

The second time along the high street was a bit more fruitful, with the window cleaner working away. He was quite happy for me to take his picture, which was nice. But even that thirty or so minutes later really didn’t find much more activity. I think it is much more likely that the period between 0730 and 0900 would see much more activity. Unfortunately, unless I’m on holiday, I’m not likely to be up at those times.

I can compensate for this a little bit by walking along the high street during my lunchtime walk, I had been trying to avoid doing that because every time I walked that route I would end up going in to the bakery and buying food that I really don’t need to eat, not helping my weight. This week though, I have walked the route at least twice and have avoided the bakery and can do it. It’s getting to the point where I need to do the research about the old buildings and shops that feature in the books I have, so that I can approach the shop owners explain what I want to do and hopefully, get a positive response.

This coming week then, I intend to make as many passes along the high street as I can. Certainly looking out for activities, and things going on, just generally observing. It’ll be interesting to see how things develop.

The picture? Nothing to do with the high street, I just like getting pictures of ships to show you.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
