Both of these are pictures from an evening stroll in “Little Venice” an area of London not far from Paddington Station. We visited there last summer.
Walking about in the area of Paddington Station last summer we saw several of these decorated bears. The information on the base says that there is a “pawprint trail” starting at Paddington Station. It looked like it would be fun to follow. There are always way more fun things to do than time in which to do them…
Perhaps because we mostly have alder and evergreens locally I was quite fascinated by some of the trees, mostly I think they were sycamore, or plane trees, that we saw while walking Hadrian’s Wall National Trail in England last summer.
I think I love them because they remind me of fairy stories.
Here are a few from one year ago today, when we were walking between Carlisle and Crosby-on-Eden.

Our walk along Hadrian’s Wall Path last summer took us from Solway Firth on the west coast of England to (after a short metro ride from Wallsend) to the North Sea at Whitley Bay.
At the start of the 12 day walk we were up late (sunset was around 10 pm) and early, due to a combination of jet lag and adrenaline. The day after the walk we just went out after breakfast.
