Welcome to my blogs.

Most weekends, driven by curiosity, my husband Mike and I set off on a new adventure, often prompted by something we have read or heard about. Only three things are certain – one, that we will always find something of interest, two, that there will always be tea or coffee and cake at some point and, lastly, that we will arrive home rather footsore and tired. We will, however, always have a story to tell.

This website draws together blogs I previously posted on an old website and posts from Facebook which will gradually be added to the archive. I will also be adding regular new blogs with descriptions and photographs of our recent walks.

I hope you enjoy the posts and comment on them. I also hope that you might add suggestions of your own. If you like what you see and would like to see more, please look in the Archive.

Please double click on any photographs you would like to enlarge.
