It’s been a couple of weeks since we have been for a walk. The sun is shining unexpectedly today so we decide to take full advantage and set off to tackle section 8.
We start the walk at the car park and decide to enjoy our sarnies here at the picnic benches.
Before setting off we read the instructions so we had a good idea of where we were going. Today was well signposted and I think only refered to the instructions once.
The route through Theives wood was full of sunshine and good paths. We are certainly going to come back here on our bikes.
We headed across the road into Harlow Woods. Unfortunately we were passed by some locals speeding through the woods on their motorbikes. Not a pleasent experience as they were all going far to fast. Tom was quite upset and kept worrying that they would be back.
Doesn’t it help …. every very child surely loves walking through muddy puddles?
Loving the local history.
Always great to find a Geocache.
Looks like there has been quite a bit of work on the nearby well.
We are going to come back here in 6 months to see how the area has changed.
With the recent hot weathe, the daisy and dandilions are in full bloom.
As we walked near a local farm we were all suprised to see a fox on the path. It looked young, the horses didn’t appear to be bothered. We also saw little rabbits today too.
Walking up New Road we came across another couple of bikes which left Tom worrying again.
A nice walk back to Blidworth.
We finished the walk at the local Tesco where we waited for our lift and enjoyed a well earned ice cream.
Love our selfies. Warm enough for no coats today.
Weather: 15°C sunshine and clouds.
Time: 1pm for 2 hours and 6 minutes
Geocaches: Two both found by Tom today.
Miles: the book reads 6.25miles, but my reader only showed 4.65 upto Tesco in Blidworth.
Wildlife: all the birds were enjoying the sunshine and singing lots. We saw plenty of Robins, Horses, Fox and Rabbits.
Instructions: were good today.
Distance on Route 42 miles, 61 still to go.
