These are my girls; Evie-Mae who is 2.5 and Issabelle who is 1.5 …. The wind and rain does not deter us during the winter months, we just togg up and choose a sheltered walk … one of our favourites during the winter months, during the wet and windy weather being Stowe Woods, Nr Duckpool, a lovely woodland walk , 14 miles by car from Court Farm, Marhamchurch, or 9 miles from Northcott Farm.
This is an annual event, the 3rd picture below was taken there last year, when Issey was just 8 months old, Evie 20 months when she too preferred to be carried than walking too far! … good ol Daddy! … now seeing them both this year walking and running hand in hand up the path in the woods makes all the effort of getting all the gear together, last minute nappy changes, dealing with temper tantrums as I couldn’t find Rabbie , Evie’s ‘cannot live without’ toy and actually making it out the door! …..worthwhile ..
The walk basically consisted of more re-tracing steps rather than actually getting anywhere but a) we were well out of the wind b) there were lots of muddy puddles to enjoy splashing around in and c) Job done, tired out, they slept right through last night!
