Afternoon Walk

Today we had very mild weather.
Perfect for an afternoon walk.
This time we went a different route so had new sights to see.
 My favorite house along the way.
 A very colorful bilingual nursery school.
 A bus stop.
 Water fountains.
 Minarets and mosques.
It took us 40 minutes to get to the end of the walkway.
And about 35 to get back home.
How can you explain that you need to know that the trees are still there,
and the hills and the sky?  Anyone knows they are.
How can you say it is time your pulse responded to another rhythm,
the rhythm of the day and the season instead of the hour and the minute?
No, you cannot explain.  So you walk.
~Author unknown, New York Times editorial, "The Walk," 25 October 1967

Have a beautiful day!

Tammy, it's lovely to catch a glimpse of the surroundings you walk in.
The crystal clear sky enhances your wonderful image of the minarets and mosques in Kuwait. I've had a check through the posts I missed too.
Your rug is amazing, how exciting watching it grow - I would love to watch your deft fingers at work!!
Your snowflakes are magical!
Joyeux Noël

Thanks for taking us along on your walk with us. It's so fun to see the things you see over there on the other side of the world from us here in Oregon.

Those water fountains are beauties -- so different from the stainless steel ones here. And the bus stop!! Graffiti shows up in every country I guess!

We took a walk yesterday.....not another person on the trail, we had snow and then sun and then wind and then sun again. Quite a variety!

Like those drinking fountains....very unique.

Hi to you and Sam! Cute shadows!

Tammy-- I love when you share images like this-- so close to where you live.. I think we are all curious about your far away place. It looks like it was a lovely day for a walk! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Terra said...

I enjoyed sharing this walk with you, and I like the photo with the shadows and cobblestones.

So lovely to take a walk with you today, Tammy...I loved seeing your sights & favorite house. Thanks for including us!

I love that quote at the end of your post, too--wonderfully said.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend, dear friend!


Susan said...

That's nice you took a new route, Tammy. Always good to change once in awhile. Makes life more interesting, I think. Susan

Serena Lewis said...

Thanks for taking us on the new route...fantastic photos!!

Have a lovely weekend ~ xx

Hindustanka said...

that's a nice walk, Tammy. Glad you have pavements there as to walk actually.. because here it's not possible.
I can see that the weather is really over there.
Have a great weekend and enjoy more walks! Anna

Beautiful walk Tammy, hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Tammy,
You got a quite interesting walk and took some colorful photos. Special water fountains too and build in such way that your head gets a little shade... like a toadstool.
Hugs to you,

Dagmar said...

Looks like your early morning walk has wonderful light..the fountains are really quite different from my walks in the desert here. Have a great day❤

Angela Richardson said...

I love the sights on your walk Tammy.
The nursery is delightful and so is the bus stop roof.
It's always a pleasure to see your surroundings.
I'm guessing your mild weather is like our mid summer.
Have fun, Angela.x

Wanda said...

Well, Tammy, I'm pooped from our walk but what a delight..thanks for taking me along. Now I'll just rest a bit, and do some more Christmas baking and shopping.

It all is so different. Thank you so much for taking us with you to share the sights and 'sounds'. Joan

Melissa said...

It was a beautiful day to go walking. Aren't you glad you did instead of sitting in your pajamas;)

Aishwarya said...

Tammy.... Hi. You come up with great quotes and apt ones. Lovely to read them. The pics depict that you enjoy every moment. And thats how it should be. Have fun....

Lovely photos. There is nothing better than a good walk on a pretty day!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Tammy,

I enjoyed seeing where you went walking today, and how pretty and blue the sky is.
Happy weekend

So special for you to take us along on your lovely walk dear Tammy...I enjoyed it oh so much!

Cheryl said...

Boy... it must be like a daily vacation for you.... lucky girl :-)

Kathleen said...

I love seeing your world. It is so different to mine. By the way a conker is the seed of the Horse Chestnut tree. I've just looked it up and in the USA they're called buckeyes. Is that a familiar word to you? Kathleen.

Hi Tammy!

I´ve been browzing your page... reading and looking at the nice photos. So fun to be back in blogland again! :)

I often read Julia Cameron and one of the best ways to find peace within and let the creativity flow she says is to walk... walk... and walk. So I enjoy that too very much. And I see you often walk around alot even on your trips! :)
Best way to explore new things I think.

I hope you feel fine and looking forward too see your complete rug later. It looks beautiful.

Have a nice middle week!
