A couple of weekends ago, I woke to a beautiful sunny day and the choice was a long early morning walk or try and paint the shed…🙄😂….well needless to say, the walk won….It was somewhere I hadn’t walked for years but I thought I’d push myself since it was such a lovely day…..it was going fine until I reached my destination, Folly Lake, just on the outskirts of the village….but then couldn’t remember where to find the public footpath I’d just walked along from the village 😳🙈…..
My intention was to walk in a square back to the main road and then the village as I knew the car way back, but for some reason was tempted by the first public footpath I saw….that’s when it started to go wrong….🙄…turned out ok in the end and took me through the middle of the Risby estate (so the sign said 😂) through beautiful countryside and back to the village…….
Just had the most amazing trundle
Much longer than I thought…
Walked to Folly Lake for a change
Much further than I ought……
But oh, it was so lovely
Not walked there for years
But then my trundle went array
Couldn’t remember the way back..in reverse..!
Took another public footpath
In the hope of a smiley face
To tell me where I was heading
Was I anywhere near my base?
A couple were ahead,
but I couldn’t catch them up
But then I spied a smiley couple
Coming towards me, then close up….
They pointed this way and that
With their lovely smiley faces
Then…Through beautifully ploughed fields
With bird song as my company
I found my way back home again……
Took me a lot longer than it should have done, but that was mainly due to getting lost 🙄I arrived home exhausted but having had a totally lovely trundle …….met some lovely people out doing the same, obviously all keeping to the rules. I never worry about getting lost near the village as there’s always smiley people to ask…..
Also saw this cute dog in the middle of the biggest playground ever, his owner, the farmers field……just so happy bouncing up and down through the field….❤️
