Wednesday walk challenge and Steem Basic Income Give away

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

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

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

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.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

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

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.


A good App that works well in conjunction with the Wednesday Walk or any day walk is @actifit, which rewards you with Actifit Tokens and Steemit Upvotes, if you use the app to track your steps and do a post of your actifit total each day.

If you do a lot of activity I do recommend you check it out

This weeks walk some buildings around Milford

For these weeks walk post I will share a few shots of buildings I often walk y when I go for walks around the city where iI live, Starting with this building used by the American Red Cross

Now I have surprised myself so far this sometime I have walked past this building and resisted the urge to get an icecream, sometimes it has been very easy ie it was a morning walk and the shop was closed, but even when I have gone past it when it was open I have resisted so far and the scales have been kind to me :)

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to send some Steem Basic Income shares to 5 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. @traciyork, @shasta, @qwerrie, @deerjay, @jametheil, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @bozz,

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

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

Here is my post for this week.

Your village looks so quaint as always. But I think you need to get the ice cream at least once!

Stop for an ice-cream, you walk it off in no time at all :)

Homes along Helwig Street turned into an amazing pic with the clouds against the blue sky, definitely a mood of distant shores.

I may well do that this weekend if i am good for today tomorrow and Friday I will get under my next weight goal and I think that justifies a treat LOL
I have always loved those properties along Helwig Street they have such a char to them

Veering off the beaten path, little of naughty makes it worthwhile :)

Yes indeed thats so true

Thanks so much first I have heard of Inner blocks, i am busy with work and keeping up with Wednesday walk posts today but will try and swing by and check out what it is all about this evening or tomorrow

What a nice homey place really. I feel the vibe thru your photos.

ITs funny we found this city kind of by accident before Christmas one year we were driving to MAssachusetts to visit family one evening and as I loaded the car my Camera bag tore. Little, I remembered seeing a sign for a camera shop onthe route so hoped we would get to it before it closed, we got there at 8:01 PM and it was meant to close at 8, there were a few people in there so I opted in and asked if they were still open I needed a new camera bag and they said sure, very helpful and I got a new bag, as we drove around the city getting back tot he Highway we fell in love witht he place and moved here a few weeks later

Helwig Street is my favorite and yes! It does have a nice European feel to it! I am not tempted by the ice cream, but, the shop is adorable!

I love going through Milford for the WednesdayWalks and if I get back up there soon, I want to try that seafood place!

Thanks again for being an awesome Guide for #SteemUSA!


WOW in the same say you fire me and then tell me your not tempted by Ice Cream not sure I will recover from this drama 😂

As you know plenty of good seafood places here, and i just saw yesterday that in the little pond?river outside one of the restaurants they have installed a fountain yesterday thats a nice addition to our city

Oh, how cool is that? I am not sure how you will ever tear yourself away from there, but, of course, people like us are used to pulling up stakes and moving. Again.

I will be hard leaving the mix of NYC and Milford i must admit i ave sort of the best of both worlds, but like you say we are both so used to moving having done it so many times, which makes me think now how many times have i moved let me see, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,5,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24, 25 Times for me I am not sure i have ever counted it out like that One more should be easy LOL

I will have to recount, but, I had so many 3 and 6-month moves I don't count, but, it was a few less than yours maybe 21?

I think for most people more than 10 would be a crazy number, but for us and people we work with its quite common, I am glad on planning one last move and being done with it ;)

Thanks again Aunt Tippy :)

These buildings are so beautiful, especially the First United Church, just gorgeous! With all the walking you're doing I really don't think a little ice cream now and then will do any harm;)
Lovely walk @tattoodjay!

It is such a beautiful city I am glad we happened to come upon it and decide to move here

I may treat myself to an ice cream from there this weekend since I should hit my next weight goal tomorrow or the next day with luck :)

My contribution this week - The Resu-Wrecked Heron

I loved your post how unique and cool that place is and so much to see there

Good Morning...!!
🙂 @tattoodjay
Wonderful photos...!! Milford truly looks like a very lovely place..!!
My entry for this week

Good morning t you and thanks for joining the walk Just visited your post now :)

Wow, thanks for the gift. Those are some awesome shots. I am looking forward to typing up my Wednesdaywalk post in a little bit.

MOst welcome my Friend,, and I see it took me to long to reply so that you have already written up and shared your post, my excuse is its Wednesday and I was out for a walk LOL

Beautiful buildings with such character... The church is very majestic with the pillars out front!

I think it was my mistake calling it the church its actually another building held but he church I think it may be a hall or something the church itself is down the rod behind me as I took this shot

Thanks for your visit

Ahaaa.... no worries, it is a beautiful building! :)

You're most welcome!

Cheers Have a great day

Thank you so much Jay for the SBI! Maybe one day you should stop in to that ice cream shop and treat yourself to something yummy! I love the church photos and always find myself wondering what the inside looks like..I'm sure I'm not the only one?! Your photos (this and past) of Milford, make me want to visit there someday but time will tell and who knows maybe I will run into you at that ice cream shop or cafe! 😉

Most welcome and i may just do that before Summer finishes, I am just about at my next weight goal so if I am good till Saturday I may be able t justify having an ice cream LOL

Hint taken about the inside of a church, I have been in a few of the churches here and they are pretty nice but i just feel strange taking photos snide churches

I just love old architecture and even though it's not as old in NY and Toronto as it is in Europe, it does have lots of charm. Spectacular shots as always my Friend.

And here I am with some macro. You know me, lol.

By the way, I meant to ask you about Actifit............would I have to do it daily? And what about recipes?

Actifit you can post anytime you like and can include anything you want in the post you just have to do the post from the app
I normally prepare my post on steempeak or busy adding photos text etc and then copy and paste it into the actifit app so you could combine it with recipes for sure

Now off to visit your post and see your macros

I logged in on my computer, but it clearly, this works on from mobile..............I don't know how to would I copy and paste the whole post on my mobile.

I do it on my Mobile each day, on Steempeak I just hold in the middle of the draft and select all and copy, then go into actifit and post the text

So you post only text on Actifit?

no when I prepare the post on Steeempeak, I add the photos then, and when I copy and paste it into actifit the photos show up as well, its just like preparing a normal post

Oh I see! Thank you!

NO problem glad to help

Lovely architecture in Milford! I finally posted for #wednesdaywalk, but you have it spelled #wedensdaywalk. Which is correct fro your tag?

Here is my link, but it's definitely not a walk I took yesterday , or even on any Wednesday. It was on a Saturday, but I had hoped to post it yesterday. Am I speaking in riddles?

LMAO I spell my own tag wrong how crazy is that the right tag is of course with it spelled correctly wednesdaywalk :)

as for the tag, I ask that people post it on a Wednesday if they can but the walk can be any day at anytime, I do not have rules just guidelines :)

Nice photos. This is a lot of fun. I got some shots today on my walk so I will do my post a little later and be back.

Thanks I would like the Wednesday walk to be a challenge people have fun with and get some walking in for me its all about having fun when we can :)

Wonderful walk photos! I'm on my way now to go for a walk around the local botanical gardens. My post is going to be late, but I'm resteeming yours!

Remember i don't have rules just guideline so even if tomorrow or later it still would count for me so no pressure :)

Such a cool idea to change the mural each month, and to showcase local talent! Love the look of the church building, and I agree - that stretch of houses definitely have an old European vibe. And THANK YOU for the SBI! Muchly appreciated!

Here's my contribution for the week (back to my archives again) -

And here's a thank you for hosting - !tip steem

I didnt say it well its not so much Murals but local artists can display there work, for a few years I had October or November there where I would hang my photos and have a reception, it was such a cool feeling seeing my work up there I must say, but when I heard the wait list for others to get a month there to display there work was over two years, I decided to have a break from showing there and havent done it again fr two years

thanks for joining the walk and off to visit your post shortly

I would not resist if I were you and I would stop and get some icecream 😀

Very classical looking church, with the pinnacle on top. Very classic of churches at that time it was built.

I think this is an adjunct to the church a meeting room or something the church itself is down the road a little with a spire, but your right this does have the style of churches of that era
