Walking the Wolds – day five

Day five

Another mile and a half of public footpath walked today and a bit more of my local area explored 🙂

Retracing steps to avoid the busy A16 added to the total length of the afternoon’s walk and there was some necessary pavement pounding too, but one of the joys of the local paths is meeting people who live nearby. They are always happy to share local knowledge and have a chat, and I never cease to be amazed by how much they know about us already! I’ve met people who have known instantly who I am and where I live, just from the sight of young Amos, whose reputation (at least I hope it’s his, not mine!) obviously precedes him! The lady I met for the first time today even knew that my husband does a bit of wood-turning – word travels fast and far in a rural community!

I didn’t really plan my route today, and didn’t take a map, so I was happy when a chap I’d spoken to outside his house the other week stopped to admire Amos again and told me of a footpath I might like to explore. The lady who knew about Tim’s hobby (and his family, it transpired!) also described a route I might take.

Crops of the day were: oilseed rape, leeks, broccoli and curly kale.

Drawn in on my return, the walk I did today is shown below in green over pink high-lighter:
