31 things you can do instead of spending money – #1 Completed | cocoaevenings

Find the most beautiful place within 100 miles and go there. Explore it. Or just find a bench and take in the view.

I fell head over heels in love with the spot by the canal besides a row of houses in the picture below.

I was mesmerised after I spotted an incredilby beautiful sunset behind the row of houses, more than a year ago. I remember the view vividly and had been wanting to come back to this spot ever since.

That gorgeous sunset was the kind with bright orange and red rays, shooting out from beneath deep clear blue clouds. It sets into a romantic purple.

Unfortunately, the sky was not clear on the day that I went back in search of the wonderful sunset.

Before that, I tried to get a better view of the sunset by climbing up the overhead bridge. But to no avail.

I took many deep breaths of fresh air and took in the sights. I went on to walk along that canal by the row of houses for a bit. Along the way, I took a break on one of the benches.

The sun soon set and the sky got dark. There was still the last streams of light.

I caught a picturesque view of a balding tree.

Darkness fell sooner rather than later. I was at a junction then.

The rush hour had almost gone and the day was approaching an end. Goodnight. Goodbye.

Cocoa’s notes:
I took about forty-five minutes to walk all the way. I must admit that spending this forty-five minutes on a walk in fresh air surrounded by greenery proved to be more satisfying than I had imagined. Till now, I relish that sense of accomplishment – achieving something for the first time in life. I would talk about this to my children if I had children, and I would teach them to enjoy such little things in life.

Do you enjoy walks? If you do, would you prefer to take quiet walks alone or with others?

Enjoy!
