Weekend Walking

Last weekend we took part in a charity walk organised by friends who are raising money for their son-in-law who has motor neurone disease. We did a similar walk last year for the same cause. The walk started and ended, conveniently, at The Moat House a large pub/hotel in Acton Trussell, a village just outside Stafford. We joined the walk at lunchtime for the last 6.7 miles. After a misty morning the sun came out and we started our walk at a pub at Milford Common. When the walking resumed highlights included seeing deer roaming freely in Cannock Chase, the last of the flowering purple heather, peaceful countryside and rural views. The joy of a soft sofa and warming coffee at the pub afterwards was pretty memorable too. As usual there was plenty of chat along the way but I did manage to get a few photos to remember a beautiful autumn afternoon well spent.

  8. Just found your blog, and love the idea of "just a little less." In this more-more world, I'm trying to figure out a less cluttered, consumer driven, life. I'm a rookie trying to figure simplicity out. Your pictures are wonderful, and sounds like a great way to support and spend time with friends. I blog at http://newframereference.blogspot.com but still figuring things out.
