Burwell beach and Villa Rosa properties

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 :)

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, 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

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,
On the third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

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.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT

c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

So the collaboration giveaway is as follows
As well as the SBI shares normally given away from the Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenge, we will send one SBI Share each to one lucky winner who joins both challenges in one post

This weeks walk - Villa Rosa Properties by Burwell beach

In this post I showed the main Villa Rosa Building and told a bit about its history and mentioned it included some other buildings that were available for guests when originally built, and I will shot some of those properties which are now individually owned, and the beach nearby.
Starting with one of the properties which looks very nice and one I could happily live in but I am sure it is way out of my budget

Weekly giveaway of shares

I am sending Steem Basic Income shares to 3 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. @joalvarez, @crosheille,@proanima, And @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @brittandjosie,

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 and SBI share from me and this week it is @littlenewthings

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.

unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Hey @pixelfan, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

That villa or I should better say these houses are quite nice and my children would love to live in such a house direct at the beach. But I wouldn't want other people walking by in front of my terrace, when I'm sitting there at sunset, counting my money 😉

LOL 😂 now I was always against the idea of private beaches but you raise a good point counting your money and having a !BEER with random strangers and Riff Raff walking by doesnt sound good

You mean, they might want to have our !BEER too? No way! 😭

Exactly, but I have to ask your only worried about the !BEER what about the money your counting?

They can have the money if they leave me my !BEER :)
I will just make a few posts on Steemit and will be rich again ;) lol

Lol good point you have it all covered


Now it depends on the Steem only ;) lol

lol.. this feels like a last push of October Fest joy. 😁

We can but hope dream and have a !BEER

@tattoodjay - no fair! - you always have such gorgeous scenery to choose from. I love all your photowalking posts.

I know I am truly fortunate with the mix of where i work and live :)

Maybe when I retire that will all change

Hey @tattoodjay, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

I think it's interesting that the demarcation between private and public land is the high-tide mark. That reminds me of the '12 mile circle' border between Delaware and New Jersey, where Delaware owns the Delaware River separating the two states up to the low-tide mark of the NJ shore. It's kinda neat to see on a map.

Yeah I find that interesting and kind of bizarre, is it the latest high tide or the average high tide i really dont know
I didnt know that about the border between the states that is interesting

A really comfortable oasis there, ideal for holidays, nice that the beach is free for a walk. Great photography!

Nice architectural view Villa Rosa properties in front of Burwell beach.


How many homes are in that beach development ? Homes must be expensive ... gosh what a great place to live.., by the waters. Your Wednesday walk sure made me smile, @tattoodjay 🌺🤙

I did a quick look online after the first time I visited there and properties seemed to be in the half to 1 Million dollar range which compared to some areas by the beach here is quite reasonable but still way out of my budget LOL

That is a cool looking place.

Isnt it just and its off the main road so very quiet as well

Very nice looking homes, something foreign to me is private beaches all beaches in our country are open to everyone, public domain to the best of my knowledge.

Having traveled to far off countries this concept has always amazed me how people are able to "purchase" something that belongs to all.

Times have changed perhaps this will arrive here too one day.

Yes the same for me it is such a strange concept to me as well

I kind of hope it doesnt arrive there I would refer the opposite

Wow, those are pretty cool. The high tide line looks like it is almost to the wall so does that mean you can pretty much walk the entire beach? You just have to keep moving and not loiter?

Thanks and yes i often wonder about that the previous high tide was clearly up near the wall, and what happens when the high tide is right up to the properties?

I generally dont loiter anyway other than taking shots but using the high tide line seems a strange way to market he border to me


Hey @bozz, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

No surprise he was Italian, lol...........I checked your earlier post. Interesting history and beautiful architecture for sure. Wonderful shots!

Yes indeed some call it the Poli Mansion but I prefer what he named it an interesting place

Yes, absolutely! It's sounds very European, well Italian obviously.

Yes he was either from or of Italian descent I remember reading

He must of been!


That's quite a place and lovely photos! I managed to get out for a walk as well, and posted about it here: https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@keithboone/my-wednesday-walk-at-hatley-castle


Loved your post

Wicked awesomesauce beach captures, @tattoodjay and those are amazing properties! I especially love the fancy entrance (lions have a special place in my heart).

Nice, but expensive, looking houses.

Ohh yes they are a good price for sure :)

Hey, this challenge is a great idea!

You've seen it already, but for the readers, here's my contribution, with photos and notes about transit, crypto, art and nature: Wednesday Walk: Utrecht Science Park.

Thanks I love walking so it was a natural one for me to start, and yes I saw your post but thanks for dropping your link for others to see

So stunning photos of some stunning properties. Ones gotta have deep pockets and coffers to get into one of these.
Really beautiful. Thanks once again for sharing such beautiful properties.

Thanks for your visit lovely properties but way out of my budget to live in but nice to walk by

oh wow! That's a real surprise @tattoodjay ! Thank you so much ! ♥️
This is a very pleasant surprise indeed!

Most welcome
Have a great day

Sorry @tattoodjay for my delay, my connection didn't help me yesterday, but my mom says it's better late than not going;)



No need to apologize I just saw your post now 👍🙂👍

How cool is that?
To live by the beach...

I just read your "guidelines"....
Sorry, will drop my post here next time
.... And also on Eliza's I suppose...

But doing both of it together is a challenge indeed and like a fun one to do too :D

Remember they are just guidelines and not rules you can do what you want 👍😎👍
So if you want to do one or the other but not both that is fine

Got it 🙂
