Come along with me as I take a long walk with lots of photos!
Are they comfortable enough for my trip next month, where I will be walking many miles?
I headed out my back door, down a country lane to see. . .
. . . both whether the shoes would work, and the pretty scenery.
Grape Hyacinth by a stone wall.
Ferns just sprouting.
The road towards the beach.
A fern faerie circle.
Ferns in the sun, bursting open.
Across the road where we used to summer.
This would make a lovely cranberry bog, if any cranberries were planted!
Cute cottages near the beach.

Finally, my shoes and I arrive at the beach.
The storms last winter took out so much of the parking lot it has been closed to cars.
But the beach is as beautiful as ever!
The creek guarantees there is always water, even at low tide.
It's loads of fun to ride a raft or rubber boat out as the tide recedes or in when the water almost covers these rocks!
This looks so peaceful doesn't it?
We were having wind advisories and the wind was whipping around pretty fiercely!
I headed down the beach testing my ATS
(all terrain shoes/sandals).
I have no idea what a Skate looks like,
but this is what they leave behind.
With the other parking lot washed out, will people discover this one?
Back on the road home
They may be evergreen, but they too put out new growth/pinecones in the Spring.
My favorite foot covering.
And I'm gonna have to find a different pair of sandals for the trip.
