Mitford Moments: Walk

Taking walks is a very Mitford like activity. It is enjoyable and provides exercise as well. One of my favorite places to walk is the North End in downtown Colorado Springs ~

The houses and yards are often quaint and I like to imagine myself living there! One thing I miss most in the south is sidewalks! There are no sidewalks in our neighborhood and, while I do still take walks, I miss this part!

Do you have a favorite walking spot?

I love to walk. One walk I really miss is the one we had to the beach from our home in CA. I loved walking with the children. We would walk down to the beach then stop eat a snack and walk back home. It was a 5 mile walk. But did not feel that way. Now I am searching for that walk here that brings in that same feel.

I love to walk on certain streets in our neighborhood. Some day I hope to live within walking distance to the grocery store and other errands. (I am about a 15 minute one way walk from the library now, which is fun occasionally.)

I think it depends where you live in the South as to whether or not there are sidewalks. In our area, some streets have them and some do not.:-(

Monica,
Being a native of Colorado Springs, I loved the old neighborhoods too. In my town in Potsdam, there are so many lovely places to walk. One of my favorites is Brandenburg Street here is the link.
