The Thursday trip had three canine walkers-two of them are here.
We started in the woods next to the pub and found some busy ants.
The woodland part of the walk was pretty but arduous in places as well as slippery...
We omitted the woodland section for the Saturday walk which made it shorter in terms of time if not distance
That was quite an obstacle course with three dogs!
A nice landscape IMHO. Nearby a mad March hare was running all over the place.
Look carefully to see a rival angel of the north. Can't see it? Look at the second sheep from the left and go vertically to the edge of the green.
Not sure what type of sheep these are. They look like Jacobs but do not have big horns.
Oh dear- the autofocus button accidently got switched to manual hence the blurriness of our Saturday lunch photos.
Some of us went to inspect the daffodils but not yours truly so no photos I am afraid.
The Dipton Mill pub is a fine establishment but it closed before we got back on the Thursday. With the walk being shorter on Saturday we had better luck and enjoyed drinks accompanied by a blazing fire.
Next Saturday walk is on MAY 11th and will start at Rothbury.
There will be a local walk available on Thursday April 18th (Maundy Thursday) starting at ~ 9:45 from the usual place. The next Monday walk is scheduled for 6th May but that is a Bank holiday so perhaps folks will have other plans.
