An Impromptu Walk

We didn’t have anything planned for the weekend, but because we knew that the rains were scheduled to come next week, and as expected, the temperature is also going to drop.  With that in mind, (and because of the glorious sunshine), we decided to go to Rough Tor on Bodmin for a little walk with Doc.

Instead of walking towards the hills though, we headed off to explore a different path and turned right for the woods instead.

It was a lovely sunny day, although it wasn’t really cold, we were sort of bundled up complete with scarves, prepared for a breezy and a bit chilly-day.  It wasn’t really.

We followed the path, expecting it to turn right any minute to one that would lead us back to Rough Tor again, but it went on and on and on.

After walking a while, the wooded path suddenly ended and we headed right and sure enough the “Tor” (which means hills in Cornish), appeared amidst the blue skies.

It’s been awhile since we’ve been up there.  I think the last time was when a friend visited.  Maybe if the weather is good again next week, we might just visit again.

It was a lovely saturday.  Poor Doc though had to be kept on his leash because of the cows and sheep scattered around.  In fact, the whole time the poor animals were suspiciously looking at this one excitable dog, who just wanted to run around the hills like a loony – but couldn’t.


Are you guys having a lovely weekend?

    Always such stunning expanses of country side in your posts,so much space, it really is beautiful. Sounds like a lovely walk, but poor Doc having to be kept on his lead!

    • Yes, poor creature. He wanted more than anything else just to run around like a loony, but of course, we couldn’t let him because of the cows and sheep!

    I’m glad you got to rediscover one of my favourite walks. New Year’s day is when we tend to go up, it really is cold then. I must try heading off through the woods, it looks lovely. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids

    • It’s lovely up there isn’t it? Don’t think I’d manage to go up there in the Winter. Too cold for me! 🙂 x

    What a great impromptu walk! What a great way to spend some time together and outside!

    • Thanks Kate. Yes and now the rains have descended upon us, so I’m really glad we went out that day 🙂 x
