My most relaxing moments were in the English countryside. I walked 6 – 10 blissful miles daily. We were fortunate to have such great weather and many walking paths with fabulous scenery.
Those who know me, know I’m a big animal fan. I have 6 furkids at home, and countless others that have lived with me. There were kissing gates,
to keep the cuddly cows(click link for full experience) from wandering into the wrong field.
At home, I enjoy these types of experiences on horseback. At first, I felt like there was so much I was missing, because I couldn’t cover as many miles as I could on my horse. But, walking allowed me to slow down and appreciate parts of nature I may have otherwise missed. Slowing down was good for me. I can operate on a pretty fast pace. Obviously, I’m quieter walking than on horseback, and it’s hard to describe the delicate sounds of the wind rustling through the leaves that I seemed to hear differently along the way.
We walked miles along the canal,
All these idyllic scenes were reached from our cabin at the Wychnor Country Club.
Cheers England! I miss you already.
