WALK REPORT: 25TH OCTOBER 2020
I had visited these woods for the first time a couple of weeks prior and was so taken by them I vowed to return and explore them a bit more. It was to become the perfect pre-lunch stroll with the family today! There was lots to love: access to the woods was super easy from Annbank, the stream was as pretty as I had remembered, the River Ayr full from a week of heavy rain and the whole area looking suitably autumnal. The kids enjoyed picking up a multitude of different sized sticks and challenging us to find the biggest piece of branch to drag along. I’m pretty sure I won 😉
The footpaths were fairly muddy and wet in places: definitely a boots or wellies walk, and aside from a few people out walking their dogs, we had the place to ourselves.
Shortly before the end of the walk, I had my own challenge to set: who can make the biggest splash in the muddiest puddle! The winner?……
