This year I am joining in with #walk1000miles - the first 10 weeks

I decided this year to join on with #walk1000miles and while I am at it to take pictures and share the beauty of the area I walk in at the same time. I feel lucky living in Scotland, it is such a beautiful part of the world.
In fact according to Rough Guides users Scotland has been voted the most beautiful country in the world. So seems such a shame not to share my country with my readers. This will follow little Dixie dogs walks, the seasons with the snow, the sun rises and sunsets, the flora and fauna and anything else that takes my fancy,

1. Scotland
And finally, we come to the world’s most beautiful country as voted by Rough Guides readers: Scotland. Who can deny that the wild beaches, deep lochs and craggy castles are some of the most wonderful and beautiful sights in the world? Add in thousands of years of history, more delicious whisky than you could taste in a lifetime and excellent golfing, hiking, and biking trails and you've got a very special place indeed. Well done Scotland!
January was rather a wet month but lots of river walks were done when out and about with hubby and dog.


and a snowy playpark in Oban with Ziggy.

Not to mention the parks with the grandchildren. I started on 7th Jan and by the end of the month was up to 103.5 miles.

So where was I in February and what did I see?

Had headed towards Oban for ten days, where getting out with a toddler and a new born baby in the snow when the house is near the top of a steep hill with no pavements was rather difficult.

I did get out a few times by myself.

We walked down to the beach for some fresh air. She threw stones in the water and sat on the stones and we had taken her bubbles with us so she played chasing bubbles as well.

I dropped them off at toddlers and took a walk round Connel for an hour. Over the Connel Bridge and looking at the falls of Lora.

Back in Ayrshire and more walking.

Even spotted a Robert Burns postbox.

Also had a lot of days with water breaking over the sea wall.

By the end of February I was up to 230 miles.


There are four of these benches on the low green, nver spotted them before now but they don't look new.

possibly the Loch Ness monster that has been blown off course?

So there you have it, the first ten weeks and my total is now sitting at 362.20 miles.
