Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge : Week 21

Chichester Park from the City Walls

Chichester Park from the City Walls

We went on a lovely stroll recently on the City Walls in Chichester,England.   The city dates back to Roman times, about two thousand years ago, and the walls have been restored and turned into an interesting elevated walk which is only about one and a half miles long, and goes around the park, the cricket grounds, and the gardens attached to the Cathedral and the Bishops Palace.

And if you don’t feel like walking or running on the walls, this might be an easy alternative!

Is it a Bird, Is it a Tree?

Giraffe in the woods

Giraffe in the woods

This old tree in Garryduff Woods, near Cork city, looks a lot like a giraffe about to take a nibble from the sweetest leaves at the top of the trees, or then again, it could be a very long legged horse. What do you see?

Hiking the Hills

These photos were taken last year, mostly in the Galtee Mountains, Co Tipperary, and show some of the beautiful countryside we have here in Ireland, it is so great to get out on a dull or fine day, and to be able to climb a mountain medium sized hill!

Travel Theme : Pink

Fuschias

Fuschias

Pink is a colour that always cheers people up, and is loved by all girls, big and little.   These pink fuschias remind me of a summer’s day, and I look forward to seeing the fuschias in bloom in the next few months.

And I will be putting on these trainers soon, to brighten up my evening walks.

Time to go walking!

And my sweet grand-daughter is pretty in pink as she enjoys the snow last winter

A Flock of Seagulls!

While walking by the estuary near Blackrock on Tuesday evening, we saw hundreds of seagulls resting on the mud at the edge of the water.    Gulls like to feed in flocks, so they were probably having a light supper on all the goodness left behind by the tide.    As the tide was out, we couldn’t get too close to them, so they were oblivious to the flash of the camera, and kept feeding and resting there.
