It seems like ages since we've had a decent walk out anywhere, so yesterday we decided to mosey along the towpath to The Bridge Inn at Horton, a lovely canalside pub. We parked near the marina and followed the footpath which runs on the opposite side of the canal to the towpath.
When we crossed over and saw the state of the towpath we decided it was far too wet and muddy to continue, so we crossed back and stayed on the footpath, crossed a couple of fields and came out on the road, quite a busy road and a bit of a hairy walk.
The pub was very quiet, being a Thursday lunch time and market day in town, so we had the place almost to ourselves, and enjoyed a couple of drinks directly from the wood.
The walk back along the road was again a bit hairy, but we soon reached the footpath . . .
. . . and were watched on our way by some very inquisitive sheep.
The footpath beside the canal was also quite squoggy, but not as mushy as the towpath
Although it was a very grey day, it stayed dry and we felt better for getting out of the house and enjoying some fresh air.
