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 😊.
