Weekend Special 41: Guilt-free

It was cloudy and raining on and off until yesterday. We decided to go for hiking in the morning as the skies were clear and temperature around 13 C. We had around 3 hours in hand of which we used 2:15.

Looking back.

As I mentioned in my earlier post,  I donot have my camera with me and pictures were taken with Samsung s3. We covered distance of 8 km and walked upto height of 450 m above sea level. In the last leg the inclination was 12 %. We were tired but not exhausted. ( In last three days we have walked around 20 km 🙂 ).

Note: I forgot to take pictures of the many cattle grids we had to cross. I wonder if they work for sheeps! Has anyone of you seen a sheep crossing cattle grid?

Tomorrow I will be travelling again. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

Weekend Special 35

Last Sunday I visited the local Botanical garden. It was rose day but due to non stop rain for more than three weeks, the flowers suffered a lot.

Actually on Sunday we made a new record of consecutive rainy summer days. This june is the most wettest June, earlier it was recorded in 1952. It’s raining every day including today 🙂 . Anyways, I managed to take some pictures and I hope you would like them.

 

Nurturing Thursday: Self-reliance

Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. ~Patricia Sampson

I like going for walks/hikes and at the same time I like to spend time on enjoying nature. I like to wait and watch birds, insects, leaves,  flowers and endless things what nature has to offer.  The sound of nature is so addictive. You need to stop to enjoy it.

This quote by Patricia Sampson express my feelings and is my repsonse to Becca’s Nurturing Thursday

What is your experience with “self-reliance”?
