Daily exercise around Durham (once again!)
« on: 21:05:14, 11/01/21 »
I guess I know the quiet places to go for daily exercise.


St Margaret's Church in centre of Durham City


Pathway behind church


Leading to another track

After meeting a 'Preacher of God', I kind of lost my train of thought for taking photos... someone who I thought was... umm better keep thoughts to myself!

Back to the 219 steps through woods... actually discovered a few more of the original steps, so maybe 224!




Turned left at the bottom to head along canny muddy pathway!



On the path goes



It's getting worse!


Wee Doggy


Path better this side of road
S


Some people find owls hiding in tree holes



Maiden Castle 'rickety rackety' Bridge over swollen River Wear



Old Durham Gardens


Old Durham Beck, in flood destroying Bankside



Old original Durham Station Railway Bridge... met an amazing fit, active and chatty 93 year old lady on top of here!




Alpacas





Whilst standing taking photos of Alpacas, heard a 'clump' at my feet, my friend the sheepdog had dropped her stick for me to throw.... 15 minutes later I escaped!


Feeding the pigs


Sun popped through momentarily


Silverlink Bridge and last of the ice & snow

Looks a lovely country Haven within the city, Dodgylegs  :)
with the trees it will change so much with the seasons.
I think I would need my sticks, with all the gutter during this time of year
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks watershed ... It's a fabulous place for walks!


Chatting to an elderly neighbour last night who was recalling her memories of her favourite holiday in .. The Shetlands!

Looks a lovely secluded route even though close to the City . O0

Thanks guys  O0


I always end up coming back feeling very 'saw', when I've used this map to 'jig' around the City.. ;)
