WALK REPORT: 21st June 2016
My friend knows this walk well as it is pretty much her backyard and a favourite stomping ground with the kids and for walks with her dog Cooper, who also joined us today! I actually live very close to Caprington woods but had only ever visited it on outdoor learning excursions with my son’s nursery, plus one attempt at a walk here with my mum and another friend during which we seemed to somehow get lost when the road we were walking on abruptly ended at a house! So I felt it would be much better to have someone in the know show me around… One thing I do know from my past visits is that the track can be very muddy so be prepared for that!
Cooper has to be the most placid and friendly dog I have ever met: He was so well behaved! There was only one thing on his mind and that was whether or not he was going to get away with a splash in the river! I was amazed that all it took was for my friend to say no to him and he obediently walked on. He did seem to like getting in my photos too, although I didn’t take many due to too much chatting 🙂 The majority of the below photos have been taken on my *many* walks along this route since.
