The missing woodland

Last spring, my daughter and I tried to find some woodland on the other side of our village. We thought we’d found it but I was a little disappointed by its apparent size.

Moving forward to this weekend, I had decided we needed to stretch our legs and what better way than to take a walk along the canal.

There were quite a few walkers and cyclists out, which felt a bit weird at first. Then I realised how refreshing it was to see people outside of an online chat room, even from a distance.

Back to the discovery. As we walked along the tow path, I wondered if the bridges across the canal would be passable. My daughter, who had done this walk previously with one of her friends, said no. Of course, she was right.

However, I was determined that we kept going until we did come to a bridge where we could walk to the other side. Indeed, this was a good move as, in doing so, we finally found the woodland we had been looking for last year.

Forest bathing here we come 😊.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    How wonderful to find a wood- I love walking in woods, even all by myself.

      I hope you will be able to walk in one soon, Cathy. They are special spaces, which is in part why I’m turning my back garden into a mini wood 😊

  2. Hurray! Well done for persisting! As you know I love walking in woods and I love hearing that they are out there even in fairly urban areas for others to enjoy. Your backgarden is becoming lovely but probably not a decent length of walk.:)

I love to read about your own experiences and any other feedback you have, so look forward to your comments below.
