Dave and I looked after Pepper, Dave’s parents’ dog, in September and it was such a success, that we have had her stay with us again recently! The weather wasn’t looking bad on the Sunday and with Autumn being in full swing, we headed for a walk at Symonds Yat in Herefordshire. Read more “Autumn Trek at Symonds Yat, Hereforshire”
If you live in or around Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, you may have noticed a lot of graffiti popping up around town in aid of Cheltenham’s Paint Festival. One lunchtime, I walked up the Honeybourne Line to catch more of a glimpse of what had been going on. Read more “Cheltenham Paint Festival, Gloucestershire”
Where’s a better place to go during Autumn, than somewhere with a tonne of trees? Those were my thoughts when trying to find the next local spot to explore with Pepper recently. I finally settled on Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s Frith Wood Nature Reserve, near Stroud, and headed over first thing. Read more “Fall Stroll at Frith Wood, Gloucestershire”

If you’re a follower of my blog, you’ll know that my two friends – Jodie and Nikki – and I meet up regularly for cake dates and catch ups. Every time we do, we talk about getting fitter but never actually do anything about it. Until now… We’ve decided to hike up Mount Snowdon next year! And we’ve made it our mission to get ready for it by doing a series of hill climbs and long walks; starting with the Cleeve Hill Circular in Gloucestershire!

Dave and I recently bought our first house – yay, us! Because of this and having a garden, Dave’s parents’ dog came to stay for the weekend. Considering they had let us stay at theirs whilst saving for a deposit, we felt they definitely deserved a break!! In order to explore some of our new local area and give Pepper a good walk, we headed out to the Cotswold village of Winchcombe and long-barrow, Belas Knap, armed with the National Trails Walk Guidelines and Map.

Whilst living in Bredon, Dave and I often ventured out and explored the Cotswold village with his parent’s dog, Pepper. Here’s the photo diary from one of our late Summer walks.
