We are heading into week 3 of the COVID19 lockdown and the one thing keeping is sane is our daily walk, or bike ride.
We we are really lucky to live in a semi-rural area which offers us some lovely countryside walks and with the river levels continuing to drop, we are hoping to extend those walks a little further very soon as the ground dries out.
The Canford Park SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space) is a short walk from our house and offers a variety of circular walks, semi-natural spaces to explore and space for dogs to exercise.
It can be found on the south bank of the River Stour and is easily accessed via the Stour Valley trail, which is a long-distance footpath that runs from the village of Stourton in Wiltshire to Hengistbury Head near Christchurch.
It is a 1.9 mile route along wide pathways, but as the Eliza and Isaac get more used to riding their bikes, which have been sat unloved over the winter months, we hope to extend it.
As we head into spring, we have already spotted some lambs and our next challenge is to find the otters and the kingfishers which are often spotted locally.
We have found late afternoon the quietest time to walk, and if we do spot anyone, they are all keeping their distance and just offer a cheery wave as we go past.
Have you been getting some daily exercise during the lockdown?
