My DH and I participated in our first organized country walk Saturday. It was beautiful...lots of sheep, lambs, horses, and dogs. The photo on the left shows a field of sheep with their 1 week old lambs. Spring!!! The weather was perfect. It finally stopped raining late in the week and though there was lots of mud it was possible to find your footing. The trek started in the village of Withington and went 5 miles in a loop through the hills. I think the last time I walked that far I was in uniform with a very large rucksack on my back! This was definately nicer.
The walk started and ended at the Mill Pub. It looks exactly like what an American thinks a country pub should look like! Lots of small rooms with big fireplaces. The food was very good and the cider great. (I was famished by the time we got there!) I wanted to post more photos but Google isn't participating...I'll try again later.
