This bank holiday Monday we finally managed to dust off our walking gear and stretch our legs.  We didn’t stray far from home; just over to Thornden and West Blean woods near Canterbury, parking at Gypsy corner.  It was a fairly flat, but pleasant walk through the woodland (a short stretch across fields) enjoying the many bluebells and nice weather.  The surroundings were a bit mixed at times, as there were large expanses of deforestation which looked a bit like the end of the world! Despite this is was an enjoyable walk in the sunshine.

Since the 3-peaks is just over a month away it was comforting to find that our boots still felt comfy and familiar, and we had no trouble covering the 7 or so miles in a little figure of 8.  We might try to getout on our bikes for a change this weekend, before a much-anticipated week in the Lake District – hooray!
