Wednesday Walk make me smile post A walk around Milford CT

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 :)

I want to thanks everyone who joins the Wednesday Walk Challenge, it is a pleasure for me to visit all the posts each week and see walk from all around the world, I think Last week was the biggest for this challenge yet with almost 55 people joining inthe Wednesday walk fun :)

Note I want to thank @bluemist for sponsoring this challenge starting from this week, due to their support I will be from next week sending out Steem to a selection of people who partake in the Wednesday walk as I will explain in the guidelines below all of the liquid rewards for this post will be shared with a selection of participants.

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.

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.

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 some Steem to a selection of those who participate, please note this is a change from sending out SBI shares, as I did in the past.


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,

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 post around Milford CT

First off I will admit this walk wasn't in the last week I have not done much walking at all, so this is from the week before.
I will start this walk on the green with a shot of the gazebo and some of the trees all lit up for the season, our green here is so beautiful year round but especially at this time of year

Next up a shot of the Milford bank Branch in Downtown just across from the green, with some wreaths on the windows and the clock showing the temp when I was out for this walk, a good thing my wife isnt on Steemit, I told her the temp was 45 when I went for this walk LOL

Next up the Cafe Atlantique downtown, the reason I walked by it on this walk is the owner host local artists and photographers who can apply to have their art on display in the Cafe for a month, I displayed there for one month a year for a few years, but when I heard the waitlist to get a spot was over two years a couple of years ago, I dropped myself off the list to give others an opportunity.

I then walked back along the green

And one last shot from this walk, I was out walking for about 30 Minutes on this walk, a shorter than normal walk for me but more than enough time out inthe colder temps

Weekly giveaway of shares

I have sent Steem to a few people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. this week I am sending 5 Steem to @steemflow, @dswigle, @farm-mom @vickaboleyn, @lizelle, @ewkaw, @ellenripley,

@elizacheng will send one Steem to @sketch.and.jam,

Note: my projected total liquid steem income from last Wednesday's post will be around 33 Steem I am sending out 35 Steem to people.

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 Steem from me and this week it is @TBA

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.

Hello tattoodjay - Indeed very innovative and interesting concept as well. As a matter of fact, we have in India, similar concept called SATWALK (Saturday 5 km walk) & SUNRUN (Sunday 5 km run). This not only helps us keep fit and energetic but also to be socially very active. I like your Wednesday walk and shoot concept very much and certainly like to be a part of the same. Please suggest further course as I joined this incredible STEEMIT platform last week. Thanks :-)

Thanks and welcome to Steemit I hope you enjoy your time on here I know I do

As for joining the walk in the post i explain the guidelines and they are just that guidelines and not rules, all you need to do is get out for a walk and take some photos to share in a post, I suggest to share it on a Wednesday but thats again just a suggestion and not a rule

Hello tattoodjay, sure will take pics while walking on wed and post it..

Cool I look forward to seeing them :)

Even though we live in a pretty small town ourselves, my wife and I have always talked about just going away one Winter and spending either Christmas or the New Year in some idyllic little town like this. Nothing to do but watch the snow fall and take it easy!

Ohh yes growing up down Under where Christmas is the peak of Summer i always dreamed on a white Christmas in a quaint little town, never thought i would get to experience it back then LOL

Hi @tattoodjay,

As always, your photographs make me smile through the beautiful perspectives of places from which I have never heard or seen before.

The Wednesday walk is an excellent initiative.

Thanks my friend.

Thanks thats so kind of you to say :)

Lovely photos, as always. I certainly expected to see ice covered NYC scenes from you, but am so happy you are taking a break. Here's some sparkling scenes from upstate NY

Thanks I have bene so tempted to go and get some icy scenes and shots but so far I have been sensible and not done it,
That said I loved your post and it made me want o go out and get similar next time we get ice

Sorry JJ, I tried to do a bit more than 50 words for this challenge!
A great post as usual and your photos really shows how impressive that little town is.

Here's my link!

Thank you for the nice welcome JJ. Just trying to return some support.

Cheers and Blessing my fiend

Cheers also to you my friend.


Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

My entry to the #wednesdaywalk.

Great and colorful photos you made. I do not think I can make anyone smile with my entry. Happy day. 💕

Thanks for dropping the walk post link :)
Come on how could one not smile at those penguins :)

@tattoodjay You are welcome. It is just one penguin the other twoare blue snpwmen. 😁

I thought the moms with babies going for a drink would make you smile or the empty bottle the king holds...🤔

LOL I had to go and look again when I saw it the first time my brain saw the first penguin inthe middle and must have thought it was three penguin LOL

As for the moms and babies at the place that serves things with alcohol, I guess on a cold day the Johnny Walker warms up the Mums but the Kids dont get any LOL

@tattoodjay There was a time babies got brandy with sugar. A method to keep them quiet and beer was vommon too.
Merry days... I think the penguin in the middle and the same color tricks the mind..❤️

Ohh yeah thats true now that I think about it i remember when one of my Girls was teething a great uncle suggested a little whiskey on a pacifier

@tattoodjay It was quiet normal I guess. We grew up and all are far from braindead either. Merry days. 💕

yes indeed thats very true

Happy Wednesday, @tattoodjay! I love the photos of the Gazebo, and the 4th and 5th photos that looks like an endless line of lighted trees... It makes me appreciate the work of city offices involved in Parks & Recreation, and city Maintenance Departments that plan out where trees should be planted and maintain them for us.... WOW... come to think of it, there are so many people and entities involved in keeping American cities and communities beautiful!
Have a beautiful Wednesday, my friend and take care 🥰🌺🤙

Ohh yes all the people who work on maintaining the green year round are so worthy of praise they do such a great job and should be proud of the work they do

You to have a wonderful day

Milford must be really cute little city. Christmas always feel more magical in places like this. All you need now is snow. Beautiful shots as always 🎄😊🎄

Ohh yes it truly is and I am sure we will get more snow soon which is better than the ice we have presently

I am sure you will. It was snowing here today, although not much, but more is coming. It's been long since we had snow on Christmas . It would be nice.

We had a little snow today but more icy rain, it doesnt look like a white Christmas for us according to to the forecasts but time will tell

Oh really, because we just got big pile of snow and it's still snowing. Maybe it will come to you as well. I will talk to it, lol.

Ohh no No need to talk to do I can wait quite happily without any LOL

Oh really? Okay then 😂😂😂

Thank you so much @tattoodjay really appreciate the steem bounty;) Sadly did not make it this week but hoping to get out and about soon, it's our busiest time of the year now! Your photos are gorgeous, how wonderful to see your part of the world, it really is beautiful! Thank you to @elizacheng for adding the fun but and to @bluemist for the sponsorship:)

Most welcome just a token of thanks for joining the Wednesday Walk :) this time of year is so busy I am sure many won't be joining this week or the coming couple of weeks so I do understand ;)

Always a pleasure to see your impressive photography -- the holiday images are both festive and delightful!🎄💫📸

Have a great evening, Jay! @tattoodjay

My #Wednesdaywalk entry can be found here:

Thanks and speaking of impressive photography I saw your post and loved it ;)

Great festive shots, @tattoodjay! I have to say I'm a bit jealous of all the! That first one of the gazebo is my favorite of the bunch - it's just so quintessentially New England looking!

Here's my contribution for the week -

Cheers with a !BEER for hosting, and for good measure - !tip steem

Thanks for sharing your post it was so beautiful, we haven't had much snow yet, but the green now is white but with ice and not snow LOL

Aww, thanks so much @tattoodjay! Yeah, given a choice between snow and ice, I'd have to pick the s word...LOL! I hope things warm up for you soon, and thanks as well for reminding me what green grass looks like... 😂

Ohh yeah me to, ice is so treacherous and dangerous

Big time! Actual footage of me for most of the winter... 😉 😂


Well stay safe out inthe cold and ice ;)

🎁 Hi @tattoodjay! You have received 0.1 STEEM tip from @traciyork!

Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide.

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

Wow your Gazebo is a very nice protrait there. We also have a Gazebo here, and it's nice to hang around and sit there for a while. When we visit the park in our place, it's nice to walk around there, there's a stage where many activities that will take place at night, and there's a parade on our Charter day celebration, we also have a tennis court and everyone can play tennis here if they want, and they have a ballfied there, and a group of
students can stay there and sit there, for it's so nice to hang around there after class and talk about crushes and take pictures there with friends there. You can also try hanging around there with your friends and a healthy way to relax after school and have fun there. The Gazebo is one of the nice places to stay for a while as we visit the park there.

I do love our Gazebo, it is used quite often when there are event son the Green for bands to play it is also quite popular for people taking photos particularly Engagement and wedding photos

your park sounds really nice,

Beautiful spot to walk! I'm surprised you still have green grass! I thought you had nasty Nor'Easterlys blowing in storms and cold. Will you eventually have snow?
I love the contrast from the beauty of the day and the added beauty of the lit trees in the evening!
Thanks for sharing!
I have a a post for my #Wednesdaywalk although it wasn't much of a walk!

It is such a nice green to stroll around and yes the snow we had has cleared away, but I expect it wont be long till it is covered with snow, at the moment all the trees are covered with ice after some icy rain the last couple of days,
I saw your walk post in those cold temps not going out for a longer walk makes perfect sense

Most welcome and thanks for joining again this week

Very nice it does look very Christmasy around Milford nice colorful shots 👍

Ohh yeah they do it nicely here for sure not over the top but so nice
