A walk…

So in case anyone still doesn’t know, Boyo and I decided that we wanted to help The Open Nest. Boyo and I had discussions about what he would like to do to as a family to raise some money, we decided to a walk. When he came to us aged 2, he had barely walked outside, so the fact he enjoys getting out and walking now means a great deal to us. For ease we decided to walk on the Moors near our home, so although it ended up as a 5.8mile walk, none of it was more than 2 miles from home.

IMG_1306 The problem with reaching the top, is that the next bit is down and this path is particularly fast at going down!

Granny lives just off the walk route, so she looked after Jelly, and then he joined us for the last 1 1/2 miles. Granny walked with us for about a mile, much to Boyo’s joy.

We had a lovely walk, on a beautiful day. We enjoyed ourselves and raised some money for a charity we care deeply about, The Open Nest.
