With the weather being so unsettled just lately I've been a bit reluctant to stray too far from home in case I get caught out in a downpour. My walks have been closer to home. Yesterday looked promising so off I went to Ranby.
I am having trouble in deciding what to wear. Too much clothing can be uncomfortable and slow me down, too little and I feel the cold and so I walk faster. Yesterday it became really hot so the clothing I wore had to come off and go in the backpack. I tend to take an extra layer just in case, and quite often I don't need it.
I set off down the canal towpath. These two boats are permanently moored here. The blue one can be hired for trips of an hour, or longer.
The Chequers Inn has it's own mooring slot.
Off the canal now and heading towards Scofton. This is actually a bridleway on the map but is tarmacked to allow the farm traffic access. The farms around here are part of an Estate. All around this area are lots of Lime Trees. The smell is gorgeous.
Come back tomorrow to see Scofton Church. It's beautiful.
A note for the International Walking Group members. It's check in day tomorrow. You have less than 24 hours to top up your mileage.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
