JULY WALK…Its good to walk and talk!

Five members of Whitley WI’s walking group, dressed suitably for some inclement weather set off from the Hatton Arms to enjoy their July walk. They turned right down Goose Lane then followed a path straight ahead towards the Appleton Reservoir. Walking along a well-marked trail, passing different fields planted with Oats, Barley and Wheat all waving in the wind to the walkers and waiting for the sun to arrive to help ripen them. Further along the track they entered a wooded area where all had to dodge quite a few puddles after the rain that had fallen over the last few days. Winding their way up and down the undulating paths they eventually turned left to join Park Lane which runs alongside the reservoir. In the distance a couple of swans enjoyed gliding on the water. The plan had been to go around the reservoir, but the path was very slippery, and the grass was high and wet falling across the path, so they turned around and walked along Warrington Road. Having been lucky with the weather so far, the rain started and carried on for most of the way back. A three-and-a-half-mile walk meant all were ready for lunch and a jolly good chat. A further member of the group came and joined them for a drink.
All in all…its good to both talk and walk!
Thanks to leader Ann, and where are they going next??
