My friend whom I'll call V and I have been very motivated to go for a walk every day, well almost ;)
We decided the best time to go was at night after dinner and dishes were done and all of the pickles (V's and mine) have settled down for "a long winter's nap" lol. It's just so much more relaxing being able to go for as long as you want and knowing that you don't need to rush back to anything, like school runs etc. We took our pedometers and found that in 1 1/2 hours we do about 10 thousand steps....plus lots of talking, which we decided must burn more calories? Right?
I'm too much of a Fraidy Cat to go alone at night, so it's great to have a walking buddy. Our friend Tash joins us from time to time too, we were hoping to eventually have a Forest Gump following....but that hasn't happened yet.
Last night I took my little pocket camera with me. Now I've never photographed stuff at night except for the occasional birthday cake and candle ceremony, so these shots (which I used the night setting) are, well, not great, to say the least. I hope you like 'em anyway.
|Me and V ready to go. Night vision goggles "on"|

|OK, this IS actually the moon, but I think you need a tripod to get it right. I like it anyway.|
|Wow, something not blurry. Wattle doesn't move much at night......|
|The path we take runs past a shopping centre, where there was late night trading. What kind of crazy person shops at night in this weather?|
|If you've ever read this blog before you would know that I like to attempt something a little arty farty. Well, that's what I'm going to call my wobbly night camera skills.|
|Look at the pretty circles.........|
|Before you go, why don't you look at the picture and just paws for a moment?|
Forgive me, it's late and it's been a loooong day.
See ya soon.
