We have decided that the boat trip thing would best be left until the summer - not a bad idea. Therefore I thought we can all go ten pin bowling this saturday afternoon. Anybody whos interested, let me know by wednesday and I will book up a few lanes.
For this months activity I thought we could hire a canal party boat and go cruising for an evening around Birmingham. Obviously to make this worth while would depend on the number of people who want to go.
Since Dad rents a big caravan in Ladram bay every year, so he can spend two weeks flying planes with similar minded people, it seemed silly not to go and stay there and freeload for the week again.
Ladram Bay is a caravan park 10 or 15 miles South of Exeter, next to Otterton, on the South Coast. It's right in the middle of the "Jurassic Coast", basically a lot of very high cliffs and around an hours drive from most of Dartmoor. So there's plenty to do.
It being Monday and not raining I thought I'd go for another walk, following the success of last weeks fun walk around Abbotts Bromley.
At 5pm I activated the AA Walk Finder app and printed off the instructions for the first one in the list of walks near Burton. It sounded exciting, a walk around Hanbury to see the crater of what was the largest non nuclear explosion in the world.
Now all the tunnels in town are closed it can take ages of sitting in traffic jams to get home after work. 45 minutes in a queue last week.
Rather than spending hours sitting in traffic this evening I decided to go for a walk somewhere on the way home. For no apparent reason the AA website has an excellent directory of short walks you can take, I soon found a short 5 mile one in Abbots Bromley which is more or less on the way home anyway.
I think it's been almost 2 years since I stopped doing any proper exercise, apart from walking which I have done a fair amount of, and so I think its time I started doing stuff again.
With that in mind yesterday evening I decided to cycle to Stratford, after the previous weeks horrific journey back from Bromsgrove I felt I had better either arrive at a position where I can actually ride the bike or burn it. I don't want to burn it.
