Sand Dunes - A Sunday Stroll

Where new friendships flourish

semi-overcast 13 °C


My best walks have been those ones I shared with friends. There is a certain element of discovery when friends are walking together. The things you encounter are seen in a different light and conversations seem to have a deeper meaning to those you do in your house living room.
The morning started with me calling out those who were ready for a Sunday stroll. A sunny day can't be wasted indoors as you always end up doing those shores you don't really want to do but need doing. At the end of the day, you realise you threw away a perfect day so this Sunday I wanted to gather as many as I could for the challenge.
My trusty Sunday walking companion wasn't feeling well. A weekend and a half of dancing have left us all a bit run down and wanting to put our feet to rest. However, the idea of walking and rewarding yourself with a nice lunch afterwards was too good to be missed. So despite that she nagged continuously she had left her beautiful sunny porch, she came to the walk and so did another two friends.


Our objective was to go looking for a sunny spot. The sun seemed to have disappeared in a blink of an eye and the mist came closer and closer. The beautiful day we saw in the morning was nowhere to be seen; so it left us with no other choice that to enjoy it no matter what.
Those who know me well can describe me as a chatterbox but this time I was prepared to listen. It was our new walking companions' first time so it was imperative to listen and learn instead of contributing. The walk naturally divided itself in two pairs and the conversation flew easily. Discovering each other’s taste, work, personality, likes and dislikes was totally spontaneous. It just looked we have known each other for ages.
I always carry my camera to capture my experiences but for no reason I didn't feel the need to take it out. I wanted to enjoy the experience. My surprise today was to receive some much unscripted pictures of us.


Thanks Jules, Patricia and Adriana for such a wonderful walking experience today. It definitely needs to be repeated.

So if you are keen walker, try it out with your friends. You will discover it is another experience all together.
