Go Outdoors, the big camping and outdoor leisure shop is on the other side of town. I don't go over there very often. Today I decided to buy a new pair of boots. To make it worthwhile going I had a look in Halfords but didn't find what I wanted. I also passed the Arts Centre so popped in to pick up an application form for the Open Exhibition in January.
There are some big shops at Lakeside Shopping Centre but I didn't need to go in any of them. I had picked up the cat food last night at Skippingdale so don't need any more. Fully stocked up for eight weeks now.
I decided to go for a walk around the lake. I used to come here years ago with my then boyfriend, he used to jet ski. I walked his dog while he whizzed about on the water. I thought about having a go myself but that would have been daft, being as I can't swim. This first picture is where he launched from.
I walked so far around and got a bit confused when the path split into two. Luckily another walker came by and I asked her which way to go. My old map doesn't have all these new paths on it.
There are sections around the edge which are like sandy beaches. I bet the kids come in the summer and build sand castles.
I got home just after 3pm. My new boots. Exactly the same as my last two pairs. They are a perfect fit and won't need any breaking in. The price was £117. Aren't they lovely. I don't need to wear them just yet because the ones I am wearing now are good for another six months.
