Yesterday I went on a lovely Autumnal country walk at Ryton Pools. The leaves were floating gently to the ground all around me and it was all very calm. I love walking at this time of year, here’s why:
- There are hardly any people around – who wants to go out in the cold, right?
- The colours are amazing! – so much more to see than in summer (including mushrooms!!).
- You don’t get hot and sweaty – nothing worse than rocking up to the pub after for that (well deserved) pint looking like you’ve accidentally fallen in the lake.
- You get to accessorise – who doesn’t love a woolly hat and scarf??
Don’t get me wrong, you need to be prepared for mud and the possibility of rain but that’s what makes it feel like an adventure.
