Real Live Rocking Dog Says Get Walking!

Walkies With RLR Dog

Real Live Rocking Dog pleads with you to get out walking this weekend! There’s nothing he likes better than a good bracing walk, especially walking somewhere new. Last weekend saw us returning to the Kennet and Avon canal. We walked from Bathampton through to Avoncliff, enjoying wildlife, witnessing the trials of anglers and evaluating barge interior design. Of course the walk was made even better by sitting canal side somewhat chillily with a hot drink and the most gorgeous home baked ginger cake, courtesy of the Angelfish cafe.

The only pitfall with canal walking is that it reawakens Andyman’s ambition to do a barge holiday! The thought of dealing with locks, rudders, and steering frankly terrifies me. Walking the canals of England ..yes, sailing them probably not.

Coastal walks are my favourite, especially Dorset and the Gower. I love that cheek chiselling wind and the feeling that psychological cobwebs really do get blown away! It won’t be long before we take to the road again with our dear little Pod.
Though tempting to return to the same tried and tested places we need to get exploring! Rye, Dungeness, Lindisfarne, St Ives and other yummy places to get blown about.

Have a truly lovely weekend, whatever you’re doing.
