Today’s prompt is especially for the coming weekend. So many of you yesterday mentioned the perfect date involving taking a walk with your other half, whether it’s pounding the streets of a new city, or ambling through the countryside to a new pub. It’s the perfect chance to talk but if you fancy a bit of me time it’s a great way to do some thinking too and burn off extra calories – if you make it long and brisk you’re burning almost as many as jogging. Win/Win!
Pete and I try to get out to new country walks as often as we can but we’re also lucky to have the Mersey Valley right on our doorstep and miles of woodland and waterside paths that make you feel worlds away from the city. It takes us ten minutes to walk to the start of the paths which is around the corner from Chorlton Green where the Horse and Jockey is – our favourite local pub. It’s got low ceilings, real fires, guest ales and good wine, perfect for stopping off at the end of a walk. It also happens to be super dog and baby friendly.
I’d love to hear about your favourite walk – tell us where it is in the comments box and maybe we’ll all find a new local walk and bump into each other one day!
Happy weekend readers,
