I often post photos of being outdoors in the mountains when hillwalking, but here are a few different photos of the great outdoors, discovering new places and ancient monuments.
Sometimes it is hard to avoid crowds in places of great beauty and historical interest.
Crowds in Venice
But sometimes the place is so beautiful that you ignore the crowds (and the scaffolding!), and the queues to get inside.
St Marks Square, Venice
But I think I still prefer to be in the outdoors with nature.

Old Maltese house.
The wooden shutters and balcony on this house have been given a little Tender Loving Care to spruce them up, in contrast to the house below, which has been neglected and left unloved.

One, two, three, Jump
Fleeting moments that we capture on camera bring back good memories of something that would otherwise be only a memory. This photo was taken on a hilltop in the Matopos, near Bulawayo, Zimbabwe a few years ago where we went to watch the sunset while having a few ‘sundowners’. Some of us can jump higher than others!

Spring is here!!! It is so exciting to see sunshine, to feel warmer, and to have longer evenings and brighter mornings. And in a few days time, our clocks ‘leap’ forward one hour, so we will have brightness until at least 8 p.m. each evening – and so much more time to go outdoors and socialise, play sport, exercise, walk, garden or whatever we love doing.
