Pink Saturday

These Boots were made for walking...

"Walking takes longer..than any known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed." Edward Abbey 'Walking'

They are not glamours or delicate nor particularly feminine but they are comfortable and pink!!


When Nigel & I enjoy a day out in London by travelling on the tube (underground trains) the buses and walking, particularly, down the embankment alongside the River Thames - then for such adventures sturdy footwear is essential, hence my pink boots.

On one of our walks during the summer in the area of St. Katherines Dock, which is next to Tower Bridge, we came across a pond covered in these beautiful pink water lilies. Sometimes it is the unexpected that brings much pleasure and these lilies created an oasis in a very busy city.

Hi Judy,
I have found you. I have not posted a blog entry for a very long time. When I was more active, I remember visiting your other blog and chatting with you on Plurk. Your pictures are lovely.

I could use a pair of pink boot, but dont think I have ever seen any around. I will have to keep looking for I appear to be on a buying spree of shoes lately.
