Usually on a Sunday, about once a month, I get the chance to go out for a nice long walk with my bestest furry buddy – Mouse.
We try and pick a new walk every time and yesterday was no exception.
The series of 6 walks are designed to get people using a particular bus and it’s route to access the countryside thus reducing traffic on the country roads.
It’s the longest walk I’ve done with Mouse yet and with the weather so fine I was sure to pack us water, my camera and we headed out the door really, really early.
The 7.5 mile walk was designed to take about 3-4 hours but I presume they calculate that without having a JRT by their side. The first mile with Mouse tends to take the same time it takes to cover the next two because she spends a good part of that first mile marking her territory in case we get lost, hoovering the pavements for any food because she’s worried we might not get back before dinner time, and needs to find the most suitable place to poo which is either on grass or leaves and nothing else will do.
Once we finally get to the open countryside though we were romping!
I’ve captured the walk (in photo form) from start to finish so you can see what a beautiful walk it is.
I speak for us both, but I think we really enjoyed ourselves :-)
