First of all a message for Sarah who left a comment yesterday – Please email me direct. We’ll ‘talk’ via email and we can look at options together to help you get through the coming winter.
We cooked lunch for friends today and then headed out for a walk. I love walking. A good pair of boots and the joyous simplicity of the out doors. I wish I’d appreciated it earlier as I used to hate any form of exercise as I hated sport. Now, if I’d of had my time again I would have been into outdoor expeditions as I can’t think of any thing lovelier. I even enjoy a good old walk in dreadful weather as I really don’t mind the cold and wind, if I can come straight home afterwards and warm up.
No sight of cold and rain today as it was glorious. It was lovely to share the walk with friends, their dog and their children. Really good company.
We went to Siblyback lake, which is a short drive from our home. It was surprisingly quiet for a bank holiday weekend. There were plenty of people there on wind surfers, jogging, cycling, sailing and canoeing. The walk around the entire lake takes just over an hour and is one of my favourite walks when I want a really easy, hill-free, well signposted walk. I’m even happy to do it with just me and the dogs (Scruffy still can’t go out as he’s still limping about on three legs).
Oh, and by the way…….if you’re ever in Cornwall on your holidays, you really should try a day out at one of the lakes run by South West Lakes Trust, you can look them up as see the facilities on offer. I wouldn’t normally make suggestions to people as I think they can make their own minds up, but this place is lovely.
Other than paying to park the car and the diesel for the ten minute car ride, the rest was free but the views are priceless. What do you do locally, either for free or very little money that makes you really happy?
