Last walk before 'lockdown'...
The last walk before lockdown seems like an age ago, and we have moved into a very different world now. I know that most Mileaters have continued with their walking as part of their daily exercise and, with the help of Nick Priddle, we have discovered (or rediscovered) the pleasure of the many walks from our village.
Anyway, the last walk was a 6 miler from the Castle Garden Centre at Sherborne, heading South through the lovely deer park and onwards to North Wotten before turning back towards Sherborne. We had lovely views over both the old castle ruins and the new castle.
It was very muddy in parts, which is amazing to think of considering the very dry weather we have had over the past few weeks. The writer took a fair amount of ribbing over the mud (good natured I hope!). We ended up having a pleasant lunch at the garden centre. This was almost certainly the last time we have been able to sit down together in close proximity. “Zoom” is great but absolutely not the same!
We look forward to regathering as a group in the near future …whenever that might be.
