Happy New Year!

The turn of the calendar saw a grey & drizzly day here in Staffordshire – that didn’t stop us going for a walk after lunch…

Public Footpath

We’d spotted a loop of geo-caches not too far from home – so off we went to find them…

Muddy Wellies

…a little bit muddy down the lane & across the fields after the snow melted last night!!

Found the first two geo-caches but number three behind the old railway eluded us…

…numbers four & five found – “hurray” – that’s 60 in total now!

Saw a lovely old gnarly tree on the way home – without its leaves it makes a great pattern silhouetted against the grey sky…

Gnarly Tree

…then back home for hot chocolate & an evening snuggled up with some chunky sock knitting!
