For our walk this morning we went to Broadstone Rec. Jez hadn’t wanted to walk much yesterday so I wanted to go somewhere where she could take it easy. As usual we walked followed the path round to the north of the cricket pitch, and I paused at the war memorial and took a moment to think of those who fought at the Battle of the Somme 100 years ago. In the gardens a bit further on I noticed how pretty is this tree that is in flower next to the acer.
We continued on and Jez led us past the children’s playground and down the central path towards the sports fields. There is a maple along here that is beautiful in autumn. I realised, though, that it is beautiful in summer too.
A little further along the path we met our friends Twink (the lurcher) and Twiglet (the whippet). They are lovely dogs and Jez is always excited to see them.
And I loved the way Twink lay on the path with her front paws crossed.
I chatted with their owner for quite a while and then we walked on to the playing fields, where, for the sake of fairness, I took this photo of Max.
And then we headed back through the woods to the cricket pitch and the car. It might not have been a long walk in terms of distance, but we managed to take over 90 minutes walking it.

We went to the River Stour at Cowgrove.
