This week is Walk to Work Week and it serves as today’s #BEDM prompt. I think I’m doing pretty well with this blogging every day lark!
I walk to work every day. It takes me about 12 minutes so there really is no reason to do the journey any other way. It’s not the most thrilling walk in the world. I live and work in Folkestone town so I’m just walking past houses and the local primary school whilst perfecting my little dance, the dog poo dodge.
I don’t understand why people have a dog if they’re not prepared to clean up after it. There’s always so much poo all over the pavements, including outside the primary school where little kids could step in it, not to mention the mums who might end up pushing their buggies through it. It’s totally gross.
Depending on which route I take, I pass the railway station, which was originally opened in 1884 but has been rebuilt several times, the last time was in 1961, when the line was electrified.
I’ll also pass Kingsnorth Gardens, which were opened in 1928. The site was once used for excavating brick earth to make, well, bricks, strangely enough. The Foord Viaduct was built using bricks from the local area. The gardens were built after the area was turned into allotments and then became a dumping ground for rubbish.
I took this photo the other morning:
In the summer the roses will come out and it’ll be a lovely place to sit and eat lunch. My office is just up the road.
Once I get into work I’m presented with this view. Not bad, huh?
Unless it’s foggy and/or raining, in which can you can’t see much at all!
Where does you morning commute take you?
