Wednesday Walk at Fort Phoenix

Wednesday Walk at Fort Phoenix

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Any questions about the challenge read the guide at the Bottom of the post ;)

For this weeks post I am sharing a walk I took at Fort Phoenix State Reservation in Fairhaven as the sun was rising, was a nice fresh morning temps in the mid 40s and no wind, other than a gentle breeze off the water, was a nice way to start the day and some nice warm color sin the sky

In this first shot you can see the main car park, where I normally park my car, but it was closed off for resealing so I have to park out of the park on the road and walked into the park, starting in this field

Then I headed towards the beach, for those unlike me who prefer to sit and relax and enjoy the sunrise this is a nice spot to do just that looking out over the water

Weekly giveaway of shares

This week I am sending to the following who joined Wednesday Walk, for this week I did a random draw and the following each received some Hive @rem-steem, @olivia08 @dswigle, @jayna, and @porters

And @elizacheng will send to @grindle

As @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

And one person is randomly drawn who joins both challenges to receive one Hive from me and this week it is @TBA

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

Just one Wednesday Walk tagged post a week

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

These pictures are really cool. One thing I love about nature is its unadulterated beauty.

Ohh yes that’s what I also love about nature

Happy Wednesday, with my publication I want to share the beauty of the world and nature.

Your photos are so beautiful, they evoke nostalgia and times gone by. I love them, thank you.

Greetings, be well. @tattoodjay 😉


Thank you so much
Thanks also fir sharing your link

Hello dear friend @tattoodjay good afternoon
What a price place, without a doubt I would sit on those benches to wait and see a beautiful sunrise
What beautiful shots, I appreciate that you let us know
Have a beautiful afternoon

Thanks so much
My wife has spent time sitting there while I walk around there taking photos

I imagine how you must enjoy that beautiful place

Ohh indeed I do especially in the early morning when no body else is around

That's a nice spot to spend a morning :) ... And now you don't have to bundle up!


My girlfriend left me because of my obsession with storytelling.
I wonder how the next chapter in my life will go.

I have a #WednesdayWalk post for you at:
Thanks too for sending some Hive my way from last week's post!

Most welcome for the hive and thanks for sharing your link here :)

What lovely shots, @tattoodjay! I really love that one with the three benches facing the water, and the wispy tree. It's so dreamy. Like an impressionist painting. But they are all wonderful. I could imagine strolling in that landscape and feeling completely at peace.

Here is my Wednesday Walk for this week:

Thanks for the visit and sharing your link,
and yes in this spot on a early morning walk I do indeed feel at peace

Hello, what a lovely walk you have out there.

Here is my little piece, hope am on point?

thanks for sharing your link

An interesting read and I agree we should appreciate Doctors

but that said the Wednesday walk is about sharing photos and thoughts while on a walk, so this isnt really a Wednesday Walk

IT'S WONDERFUL ❤️ i love the colors and all 🤗 Utterly perfect, of course.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated Have a great day
