Third CWW walk today: 5.5 miles
Such a lovely dry and sunny day so what WAS I doing all cooped up inside?
JJ and the girls had gone to North Wales to visit granny, but I couldn't face the 6- 8 hours sitting in a car that this would entail and I have so very much TO DO....
ACTION!I got myself lunch, packed a backpack, multimapped the directions and walked Pippa.
I texted the walk organiser to see if I could bring Lucy and I could so I packed extra water, treats , 2 leads and a small bowl.
Very soon it was time to go as I needed to allow at least an hour to get there.
It was a lovely walk through many fields and Lucy- bless her- behaved impeccably.
She trotted along trying to be the lead and sometimes checking that I was following her. She loved the muddy puddles, the fields- though not the nettles or the thistles- and even in residential areas did not bark once, not even when we walked right past a black and white cat.
She didn't like the noise of the M25 and when we crossed it on a bridge she was hesitant.
