Happy New Year All!!!

Thought I’d update briefly on the walks we’ve done over the festive season…

We spent new year with friends in a lovely set of cottages in Spixworth, Norfolk. Feeling a little sluggish after Christmas excesses, and suspecting we wouldn’t be up to much on new years day, we went for a nice little walk on new years eve with a few friends…a 5.5mile circular route starting at Hainford near the cottages. It was a pretty easy walk (very flat round there) with a few chickens and the added bonus of a great pub at the end (The Chequers)…cheers Dan, Hatti, Clare and Nathan!
New Year Walk

Last weekend we walked Deal to Dover (Kent) along the Saxon Shore Way with Sam, about 10miles with detours! It was a nice walk, on a very sunny day and most of it is well signposted, but we did get a little off-track nearing Dover as signs dissapeared and dozens of paths appeared (we were without ordonance survey!). It took us about 3 1/2 hours, which meant we just missed our train so it was a nice long wait at the station, with the most chocolatey of hot chocolates and muffins, for the train back to Deal. Only bad point is arriving in Dover, which is pretty dissapointing as kentish towns go, so would recommend doing it in reverse!

I’ll try and get round to uploading some photos tonight. I might get distracted by Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall’s chickens again though!
