Weald Country Park, Essex

We haven’t been anywhere new for a while but today we went over to Essex to check out Weald Country Park. Lovely day, lots of families out with picnics.  Lots of mixed woodland, deer and a few cows.

Walks around Kent

We haven’t tried these but I want to reference the article so we can give some of these a try:

New Years Day 2016

On New Years Day we spent a couple of hours at Greenwich. We walked through the park to the markets and back again. On the way an American woman stopped us and called her family over. It seems the youngest daughter has always wanted a wire-haired dachshund (has posters all over her room – good taste). Couscous got her favourite thing – attention.  I hope the family are well on their way to bringing a dachshund into their family some day.

Belmont, Kent

Today we visited the gardens at Belmont, near Faversham. Although we did glimpse an elderly couple, all dressed up, when we first arrived, we saw no-one else durng the visit – quite nice really. I loved a wall garden and Couscous likes running around lawns (even on a lead) so this venue worked well for us. I also love a ha-ha, a field of sheep, Victorian green houses and an ice-house. Would like to visit in the summer and see the house as well.

Today we visited Chartwell for our annual Boxing Day walk. Rather warm for December at 14 degrees!

Norfolk

We spent a couple of days in Norfolk recently so Couscous could have a bit of a run round on the sand. She loved the puddles on the way to the sea line at Holkham.

Whitlingham Country Park, Norwich

At the end of our Norwich weekend we stopped in at some Norwich Broads – Whitlingham Country Park. Couscous seemed to love it. Decent length of walk around the lake. I loved the outside cafe tables that had objects displayed in the table top – especially the archaeological ones.

Leysdown-on-sea, Kent

We wanted to avoid the traffic over most of Kent, as it has been so horrendous lately with Operation Stack. So we went to Leysdown-on-sea on the Isle of Sheppey – via a slight detour towards Maidstone to avoid a congested area on the M2. A hot, sunny Sunday made it perfect beach weather. We got fish and chips in the town and ate them on the beach before going for a stroll.
