A Picture is worth a thousand words
This Picture tells it all….
Escaping from our bubbles, happy walking group members commenced our walk to the Daresbury Firs, initially crossing the busy dual carriageway of the A56. The route was full of wild flowers and such a pleasant walk through the trees so tranquil, all the better for the feeling of freedom. We steadily made our way down carefully negotiating a few of the tree roots till we came to a gate, which led us into a field of more wild flowers with a field of yellow which looked similar to butterweed. In the distance we could see a narrow boat trundling along the canal. Overhead in the distance we saw a circling raptor.
Reaching the canal, we slowly made our way along the tow path meeting several fellow walkers, cyclists and a couple of fishermen hoping for a catch. There was a family of ducks socially distancing enjoying a swim in the canal with a heron keeping an eye on them from the other side.
Passing a few horses on the other side of the hedge which were also socially distancing, one horse in each field, we headed up Hobbs Lane to have our last photo taken on the Millennium Seat presented by Moore and Daresbury WI, which provided us with a welcome rest. From the top of Hobbs Lane we walked back along the pathway of the A56, returning to Daresbury Village. Four of us had a meal in the beer garden in the Ring of Bells to finish our chat for the day. We all thoroughly enjoyed our first outing since March and looking forward to the next. The weather was marvellous no rain at all.
THANK YOU ANN…. great to be back in business.
