Quiet weekend walk

This weekends walk for Jo’s Monday Walks was not an exceptionally long walk or with lots of things to see and do but it was a peaceful walk with not many people around so it was nice. This is another of our favourite walks to do with Charlie dog as he loves just how open it is.

It was our first trip in a good while to RSPB Hesketh Out Marsh and below are just some of the photographs taken as we walked.

Here is also a little video of some of Charlie dog walk that I posted on facebook.

April Scavenger Hunt – Farm

This is Astrid’s first month taking over the scavenger hunt an to start us off this week the topic is farm.

I do love a trip to the area that is actually surrounding our caravan as although it is not actually that far away (an hours drive away at the most) it is surrounded by farms and nature reserves which is so different from our actually home which is a city suburb. Below are some of the photographs of the surrounding farms.

Are you Square? – A bright light

This month Becky’s theme is bright and with lockdown regulations in the UK being relaxed ever so slightly on Monday maybe this picture is ever so fitting in that we are starting to see the bright light at the end of the tunnel. I love this photograph taken on a walk down the Liverpool loopline, an old railway line that has now been converted into a multi-use path for cyclists and walkers alike.
