Speaking of Feet

There is something liberating about walking barefoot

be it on sand, water, pebbles or grass.

Don’t know about snow, I haven’t tried it yet.

  1. Yes, the freedom of walking barefoot. I do it here in UK (but not in the snow!), around the garden. Feels good.

      I agree, it does feel good:-)

    Excellnt idea for the theme, excellent capture – agree not a pleasure to be barefoot, even in snow too – about that (in the snow) we need to be careful – it can go wrong – like skiing in high sunshine, wearing only skiing shoes and shorts – tried many times, but only at noon in high sunshine – and only mountain skiing, not nordic skiing… πŸ˜€

      Yeah silly me – “agree not a pleasure” I should have written “agree really a pleasure”… πŸ˜€

      1. cocoaupnorth says:

        No worries, I understood what you meant to say:-). But “wearing only skiing shoes and shorts – tried many times, but only at noon in high sunshine –”. Are you into roller skiing / Nordic blading?

      2. ledrakenoir says:

        Country skiing or nordic skiing easily be too cold even the winter sun shines high – but mountain skiing goes faster so if there’s no wind it’s fun… πŸ™‚

        These roller skiing are fun when there’s no snow – sometimes use them in off skiing season – Instead of cycling, but there must be asphalt under the wheels otherwise it will not work – provides good training and a lot fat burning… πŸ™‚

        Roller skiing sure looks like fun but am too scared to try it out, might need skating skills:-)

  3. Lovely images, Cocoa. How Marvel-ous to see Wolverine prints. πŸ˜€

      Thanks AD:). Sometimes we get lucky and find animal footprints in the neighbouring forests during winter time.

    Seems it’s warm enough up there to go barefoot! Summer fun!! πŸ˜‰

    1. cocoaupnorth says:

      No such luck, it was hot only for a short while, probably 2 weeks if I recall correctly:-). The pic was taken in Joburg early this year.

      1. aj vosse says:

        Aha… yep, that explains all the naked skin! πŸ˜‰

    barefoot in the snow, not sure about that one, but barefoot on the cool green grass and the blades tickling the souls *sic* of your feet ha that

  6. Ruth2Day says:

    Barefeet are fine for me, but not on pebbles. OUCH!

    1. cocoaupnorth says:

      Walking on pebbles, consider it self-reflexology:)

  7. Yip! No beter geeling than cool hard gras under the feet.

    1. cocoaupnorth says:

      Yay! so good to see you:)

    When being child, I walked barefoot all the day. Now being adult, we are barefoot at our home.

    1. cocoaupnorth says:

      I like that liberating feel of walking barefoot at home. But now autumn is upon us, back to wearing socks indoors:-)

    Ii’s cold, in winter, I have a little rubber-mat by the front door, which I turn upside down to step on to reach the newspaper which is less than 3 feet away. πŸ˜‰
