Finding The Chimney

It was a nice, clear day when I headed out – gone was the drizzle, fog and rain from the past days.

The rules for today were simple: Find The Chimney! Live to tell the tale!

The weather made it easy and I spotted The Chimney in the background a couple of kilometers in.

As you can see from the photo, it was in quite a bit in the distance and so I continued along roads that seems to lead into the direction. As the vegetation has taken over everything on this beautiful Island, I had lost sight of The Chimney and looked out for other signs that could point me there. Could this be it?

That doesn’t look like a chimney …

But then it appeared again and I knew I was getting closer.

Now this looks to my liking! Check out this wonderful trail:

Up and up I went and had actually nearly forgotten why I was there, when I saw this:

… and there it was in all it’s beauty!

I just love old stone structures …

And of course I love myself some nice views! Do you spot the area where the cave is? Way down there, is my beach and the “little” hill I like to run for breakfast.

I don’t have to tell you how awesome it was to fly down the mountain afterwards. I think I found a new playground for weekends! There should be a mine somewhere right?

Other than that I’ll spend the rest of the day, feet up and tracking Randall running around Kerry and hopefully Paula who is Rock’n Rolling in Seattle!

What now?

Enjoy your weekend, stop reading blogs, get out there and the come back and link up your adventure here!

  1. Wow! Thats even better than I thought! I just love the steps! Did you climb it? Is it even climbable? Looks like a great day for it too, you’re lucky to live in such a beautiful place right on the doorstep =)

    1. Thanks 🙂 I climbed 5 steps 😀 they ripped of steps in between, supposely for safety. I don’t think I’d value the beauty of the area as much if I didn’t run. Feels like my territory is increasing as well 🙂

      1. Reminds me of the remote village where I was grew up in El Salvador. No streets or roads. Only walking paths and mountains everywhere. I have great memories of that place. I cried the first time I went back after leaving for 15+ years. All of this to tell you how much I enjoyed this post. Keep exploring! 👍👍👍

      1. I shall wait without baited breath
        A) Because I don’t know what it means and
        B) I can only hold my breath for a short while probably not as long as it will take you to find it and then blog about it.

  2. I know it’s about my bedtime, so a very Good Morning to you! What a fabulous job on the chimney hunting!! Really, really loving the pictures! Wow, did you ever cover some distance!! Now, is the 4th picture a cool castle for exploring?? Do NOT go up those stairs on the chimney… that looks too scary! What a great structure! I’m with you… I love old stone structures too! (you know… like that cool old castle-looking thing in picture 4, :D)

    1. Thanks 🙂 didn’t cover as much distance as you yesterday! Watched the tracker, so cool! Hope you are happy! I will scout ‘The Castle’ a bit more. It’s on a field and I am not sure that it isn’t guarded by cows lol.

      1. Hahahaha, cows! Too cute! Oh wait… are they dangerous?

        I’m so glad you enjoyed that tracker thing. Holy crap, I had a bad time. I waited at the start line for over an hour and a half and by then my feet were already done. I think my split at mile 10 was 28 minutes or something stupid like that. Ah well. Over and done and they’re in ice now, 😉

      2. Waiting that long is horrible! Better run the marathon next time! No idea if those cows are dangerous. Maybe not if one is vegan?
        I am now keen on taking more photos of old stone structures 🙂 maybe I can do a week of stone structure hunting!
