Today’s walk was on much better paths than last week and saw 14 members meeting at the car park at Felbrigg Hall.
It was great to see Barry and Karen join us today.
The path away from the hall took us along the roadway that we had only just driven down to the main entrance. We did find the first sign of spring in a group of snowdrops – the only ones seen today.
The route was along woodland paths and a little on the roads no muddy fields today. Some did managed to get to view the pier but nothing was open on the sea front.
It was a pleasure to walk the route today and there was even an appearance of the sun in the afternoon and no rain on the walk. The views were much more interesting with more mixed woods to walk through.
Pictures with an A on taken by Muriel all others taken by me. Apologies for the number but enjoyed the scenery so much.
Today we started at the duck pond, not at the start of the 15 mile road race where 500 entrants took part. We set off out of the village and the 12 walkers quickly encountered muddy paths and a steep step up over a stile. The views in the winter were poor and there was a cooling breeze. After about an hours walking we stopped for a warming drink.From here 10 walkers continued the rest of the walk and two turned back due to the distance still to be walked and this was the only point to undertake a shorter walk.
Judy and myself then tried a different route back but we made the decision to retrace our route back to the road and then return to the village along the road taking a short cut across the footpath leading back to the village. We were entertained as we walked on the right side of the road by the road runners on the left, lots of legs to see ( brr). As we walked back to the village we did find some interesting thatched cottages. I liked the birds on the roof of the first ones very quiet.
When we all met up again by the cars the ten who completed the full walk commented that the going was extreamly muddy ( they needed to clean the heavy mudd off the boots twice) and was further than the 7 miles posted.
