Just Walking in the Rain!

2018 Jul 29 - Walk to Gt Bowden2

A few rain showers didn’t stop our intrepid walking group setting off on a scenic walk to Great Bowden today.

 

 

We crossed through golden wheat fields and along the Grand Union Canal to historic Great Bowden, passing some beautiful houses and buildings along the way.   It was so refreshing to be out in the cool air after the very hot weather we have experienced recently.

2018 Jul 29 - Walk to Gt Bowden

After an hour or so we reached Welton’s’ cafe and shop in Great Bowden, where we settled ourselves down to enjoy coffees, delicious scones and teacakes, and most of all a lovely chat with our WI friends.

We arrived back invigorated and feeling very virtuous as we had walked around 10,000 steps!

We would love for you to join us on our next walk in 4 – 6 weeks’ time.   Remember walking will not only help you keep physically fit but helps your mental health too!  Look out for date and details on our website in due course.
