Almost a New Walk

It started off well, it was a lovely sunny day

P1120349

And we were going to walk along a new footpath… so we headed off down the gravel track

P1120351

Where we pass the water hole that’s just too tempting to resist having a quick swim. Only a quick one though as the water was a bit cold.

P1120352

I’d been dithering, following the scent of something interesting, so I had to go under the fence instead of going through the gate.

P1120353

Here we go.. down past these nice houses, between them there’s a gate and a bridleway along a gravel farm track.

P1120354

Mmmm nice smells in these leaves but must get on….

P1120357

Mooo – How now brown cow?

P1120359

Rather a lot of brown cows…

P1120360

No, the path doesn’t go this way, there’s a sign saying Private.

P1120361

We have to keep going along the track  – and can see some buildings in the distance.

P1120362

Rather a big ‘public footpath’ sign… I guess they don’t want us walking up past their house.

P1120364

The Courtyard… I wonder what that is.

P1120365

So, we follow the sign and it takes us along past where the footpath is shown on the map, to another sign… lots of long wet grass and as there’s quite a lot of water around this area we decide to give it a miss and come back when mum has wellies on. We might even start from the other end of the footpath, we know where that is but we’ve not been along it because it’s never looked very inviting. And neither does this one, with two strings of electric fence to go through.

P1120366

Ah well, we decide to walk back the way we came and then take a walk through Holt Wood. It’s a very posh wood, even the bats and birds have houses with numbers on. Sensible really, how else would the Amazon deliveries get to the right boxes. This was number 30.

P1120368

We passed lots more bat boxes, which are all next to the numbered brown wooden nest boxes. I wonder who lives in the brown wooden boxes, we think bats live in the black boxes because they look dark and like the sort of house bats would live in.

P1120369

How about this for a weird shaped tree.

P1120372

And if I were you I wouldn’t walk under this broken bit of tree, it looks a bit dangerous!

P1120378

This looks like a safer path… it’s not far now, so watch this space for our next adventure down the uninviting grassy public footpath which really will be a New Walk.

BOL just for fun we added the tag cute kittens, so if you were here looking for cute kittens I’m afraid there aren’t any… blame Justin Bieber, it was his idea. Cocker spaniels are almost as cute as little kittens.
