Hopefully I’ll loose count of the number of walks, but at the moment it’s still a novelty to count them. I mentioned in my Gonna list ( i.e. I am gonna do ….) that I was gonna do a 5 mile walk. Wild Daffodil suggested we did this as a virtual walk. Good Plan. Even better plan suggested and implemented by Wild Daffodil was to set up a walk together miles apart group on Facebook. Walking Together, Miles Apart
Anyone fancy a walk on Friday was the question this week. Well yes I did. Come this morning chores done ( be impressed- 4 kitchen cupbaords cleaned out, who needs Best before March 2013 blue food colouring, not me). Sun shining, I decided not to postpone a second longer. Wellies donned, off I went- past the post box- you know which one- and
past the lake at Keld Head
over the first of three bridges
along the beck
snowdrops ( I actually saw daffodils in full bloom last week in Dorset, certainly not here).
along the river bank
across bridge number two
view across the field to the village of Middleton
view from the top of the third bridge
mud , mud, glorious mud, all the way to the Millenium wood
and time for a moments reflection before taking the lane route home, where I spoiled the exercise and healthy stuff by making a bacon sarnie, but by golly it was good, and the walk was pretty decent too.
4.5km- few more before we can tackle that 5 miles Wild Daffodil!
Anyone else got out and about this week?
