Friday 9th May

Jenny fresh from her trip on the QM2 + Bramble who had her holiday with Sara, joined Heather and Val for another walk around Alton Water. The reason we did this walk again was that we could let Bramble off the lead and enjoy a good stretch for just about all of the 9 and a half miles.

It was a very hot day and we started a little later than anticipated, however, there are lots of trees on this route so plenty of shade. As it was a working day for most people there were not many walkers or cyclists so our stride was not impeded.

On the part of the walk that not many people bother with (the other side on Lemon Hill Bridge), we came across a slow worm. None of us had ever seen on in real life before, can you believe that? Jenny got out the camera and Heather provided the boot as a comparison of size. A quick check on Google and it transpires, that this was a young female.

Off for some more walking on Sunday.
