A Walk Down Sandy Lane

Oxfordshire Footpath

Oxfordshire Way Footpath

I recently stayed at a lovely conference center not too far from Oxford, and I’m told that it has a nice gym.  But who needs a treadmill with beautiful countryside just outside the door?  Each day I’d choose a destination and trek the nearby country lane to the bus stop about a mile away.  The sun was shining, the weather was fair, and during that walk I saw families of pheasants, old barns, ripe pumpkins, grazing sheep, bright red berries and boughs of ivy.

Take a walk with me in the English countryside on a beautiful autumn day.

    Very good decision! It is always nice to see that there are some guys out there who do not only choose the gym because it is more easy. Nature has so much more to give 🙂

    I think the real walking around the beautiful place much better than boring treadmill. Another thing, you made and shared lovely pictures with all of us, your readers. Thank you.

    Thank you, Alexander. It’s a lovely world if we open our eyes, and even better when we share it.
