Walking Day 10 – Nash To Newport Transporter Bridge

I have to confess, I was weirdly excited to go on this walk. Not only was there the hope of doing a bit of bird spotting, but we were also going to walk past the Newport industrial area.  Now, as walkers, most people don’t want to hang out in industrial estates.  But honestly, not only…

Walking Day 9 – Caldicot To Nash

Walking Day 1 – Clevedon to Portishead (6.9 miles)

  What Have I Started? ‘Do you want to have a day to yourself?  I’ll take Baggy Pants to the zoo if you do,’ Daddy Pants casually asked as he hoisted the wriggling child into leggings and a t-shirt.  I hesitated for just a second before leaping on the endless possibilities of the question. ‘YES!’…
