My definition of hike was a bit more of a walk. Just me and my camera, and walking and trekking around a garden. ^^

I need to do that soon. This time, it wasn't COVID that was stopping me; just the general lack of time.

Yeah, but Russia and Britain weren't chums at the time of the sale (Crimean War), so they did it to piss off britain and canada.
