Because we went to London yesterday I didn’t get out for a walk. Today I managed to get in nearly 8 miles on Thursday. On the walk 1000 it’s possible to chart the progress of your walk by setting “Missions”. It’s possible to set a route on the map, so I have a nice circular route set up For Northern Ireland. I knew as I set this one up, that it was a bit ambitious and as of today, I have covered 42% of the distance, but in 55% of the time, so I am well behind, and can’t see myself catching up.
I managed to get a couple of miles in today, it was very nice actually, I took a walk down the high street. The SaturdayMarket was on, but it wasn’t a very big market, not many stalls at all. But the street itself was pretty busy.
I took a walk along the prom (or the Esplanade as it is properly called). There were the usual collections of people, some just sat as individuals, couples or small groups ambling along, drinking in the nice weather and a thought occurred to me; I’ve held a view that the waterfront could be place for entertainment, but it is a place where people go to relax and get away from the bustle. So I may be changing my views on the use of the waterfront.
