It was a gorgeous afternoon on Sunday, so we went off to one of our favourite spots. Redesmere is a big lake, near Capesthorne Hall, Macclesfield. There are always a lot of ducks, geese and swans there, though in winter the numbers build up tremendously.
There is also sailing at the far end of the lake.
It was such a lovely day we decided we would go for a bit of a walk, and Mr.G would take the dog in the field. However I decided differently, and managed to get over the stile into the field. Quite difficult as I use a stick, and have trouble with one leg!
It was at this point I made my mistake! I knew there was a lane (no stiles) which led out onto the road again, two sides of the triangle, so to speak, so off we went down there. Oh dear, it was MUCH longer than I remembered!
Imposing gateways, pretty thatched cottages and a little stream made up for the distance a bit, but even the old farmhouse on the road didn’t make it shorter!
We were extremely glad to get back to the car, with four sore feet, four sore paws and one very sore leg!
But it was really lovely down there, and afterwards I was glad we went!
