Bank Holiday walk

This bank holiday weekend seemed to creep up on me out of the blue but ah it was so nice to have 3 days off! I think every working week should be 4 days - 5 is such a chore and when the weekend rolls around it just goes by so quickly. Unfortunately I couldn’t spend it lazying and doing nice housey things with David as he had to go away to work at the Motocross GP, sob. I was a bit miffed at first because I thought this is our first long weekend in our new home and he’s swanning off but I know it’s something he really wanted to go to and to be honest it went really quickly and was a nice change to have some time alone – I had the dog to keep me company too! 
So, on Monday I made sure we got outside and did something, especially as it was going to be a sunny day.
We haven’t really explored much of our new surroundings so I google’d dog walks and found one at Woodchester which had a haunted mansion – ha! It was only a 20 minute drive and it was huge grounds with loads of people who clearly had the same idea (either that or needed to walk off all that extra food and drink from the weekend). There were 3 trails you could take, 1 hour, 2 hour and 4 hour (I think!) so I opted for the 2 hour trail as it went past the boathouse and river which I thought would be really nice, rather than just walking through lots of woods all morning.
There’s a few pictures below of the walk and I’d definitely go back and try another trail or perhaps go back with a picnic or something. Always seem to say that though, I’ll go somewhere and then think we should have bought this, or we should have done that! Ah well. It was quite hilly, especially when you walk back to the beginning the hill is really steep. Fair to say me, David and Bella (the woofer) were all pretty tired by the time we got back home.

Beautiful, ay? What did you get up to on the Bank Holiday weekend? Hope you had a nice break. Not long until we have another weekend to enjoy! Woop.
