Amy Walks: Tewkesbury Ham Circular

When the sun shines, I itch to get out and about on a walk. Recently though, I have been snowed under with photo editing – Vicky & Clive’s wedding, my Aunt’s 50th celebrations in Minehead, a friend’s 30th birthday party & a pre-prom photoshoot. Therefore, have struggled to do so. That was until a few weekends ago, when I’d finished one set and was due to photograph the next later in the day. As a result, I found myself with a free morning.

My Mum, her partner and my Auntie had arranged to go for breakfast and walk around the Tewkesbury Ham and so, I joined them.

We first went for sustenence at the very cute and quirky Jelly Roll Café. Although I didn’t take any photos of the Eggs Benedict I’d order, I can assure you that is was delicious! Saying that though, I was rather envious of Nick and Auntie Lesley’s chunky slices of toast, they looked so good!

We then made our way down to the river, winding around the backstreets of Tewkesbury.

There are two options to take at the Tewkesbury Ham: the short route or the long route. The four of us, in a bid to work off the food and to give the dogs a good run, opted for the latter.

What seemed like a great idea at the time, quickly became a bad idea when the temperatures crept up – this was during the late June heatwave, a.k.a. the UK’s summer – and we’d forgotten to bring along water. Half way around, we sought shade next to the weir.

Once suitably rested, we continued around the trail in the heat and to our next focus: an ice cream! Luckily, it didn’t take long to reach our goal. It was wonderful sitting in the sunshine enjoying cones of cold salted caramel goodness!

Albeit a very hot walk, the Tewkesbury Ham circular was great and not too difficult. I was happy to have gotten some fresh air with family. And I’m already looking forward to doing another outing with them again soon!
