Who’s excited about being able to travel a bit further afield and start exploring the wild places again? I know I am! Our local, open spaces have provided some much needed outdoors time, but honestly, I can’t wait to visit somewhere new. Saying that, we visited a not been to in recent memory, local National Trust site recently and had a really fab time. We strolled through the woods and gardens, Rowan spotted birds and Rocky handled all the other dogs brilliantly – what a brave doggo!
Can you believe it’s December already? It’s certainly been a unusual/difficult year for most of us, but hopefully you have been able to get outside, maybe exploring local areas a bit more. We’ve recently been to local parkland watching the deer, and I’ve also found a quiet local field that has great visibility. Having visibility is fab for me and my two fearful mutts as they get a bit of off lead running and I can keep an eye out for other “scary” dawgs whilst watching their happy faces as they charge about. It’s certainly better than pavement pounding.
It’s #AdventureCalling time again! How is everyone doing? Rowan is now back at school and loving being able to see his friends again. And while our Dig Camp at Lindisfarne had been cancelled due to coronavirus, we were still able to spend the weekend exploring the island – and what an island it is too! What has everyone else been up to?
Hiya, and welcome back to #AdventureCalling. What is everyone up to this wet and windy half term? The boy was off last week, and for something a bit different, we spent a few days in London, exploring the museums, the Tower of London and seeing the sights. I even coped with the London Underground – this is what I was most nervous about. We had a fantastic time!
Every other Wednesday, me and Lauren from the Helpful Hiker would love to hear what you have been up to in the great outdoors – your big expeditions, mini adventures, days out, hints and tips. We love old posts and new posts too. If it’s outside, we want to read it.
I’ve found a lot of inspiration for things to do or places to visit from the #AdventureCalling linky so hopefully there will be something for you too. It is also a good way of reaching new readers and supporting other outdoor bloggers. Each week, Lauren and I will read and comment on every post, and we will each pick a favourite. Last time, Lauren’s favourite post was from The Hungry Mountaineer – Holcomb Creek and the Beavers. It was a really lovely post about being out in nature with friends. My favourite was The Fish with a Wish from Next Best Thing to Mummy. I love the ideas of books getting the message of looking after our planet across to children.

We’re back with #AdventureCalling. What has everyone been up to for the last two weeks? Father Christmas did indeed manage to find some microspikes in tiny feet size, and I was very excited but unfortunately, a pretty painful back scuppered any plans for big walks. Things a looking better now, and we have a winter tree walk – learning about tree identification – to look forward to.
It’s #AdventureCalling time again already. The last two weeks have flown by. In amongst the Christmas shopping, parties and the big baby toy clear out, we’re still missing get out as much as we’d like to. But it’s the last day of work for a few days and I have plans to get us outside somewhere. Rumour has it that Father Christmas may have been able to source some microspikes for tiny adult feet too, so fingers crossed.
Well, we’re definitely at the time of year where you need your big coat. During the last two weeks either been at kids birthday parties or battling a multitude of germs but now we’re all starting to feel better, we’re looking forward to getting out in some crisp winter weather. Hope you’ve all managed to get out for some adventures, large or small.
It’s #AdventureCalling time again. We’re right in the middle of half term and just back from a very blustery day at the beach exploring Llanddwyn Island again – this time, taking Rick and the dogs along to show them ow great this little part of Angelsey is. It certainly blew the cobwebs away. What is everyone up to for half term?
So we’re officially in autumn now. I love this time of year. So many beautiful colours on the way, and yep, it might be raining a bit more – but that’s what coats are for isn’t it? What has everyone been up to since the kids started back at school? Have you managed to squeeze in any adventures? Me and the boy took Anma up her first Wainwright and had a fab day on a lovely, sunny last weekend of summer.
Well it’s nearly the end of the summer holidays – what has everyone been up to? We have just returning from an amazing holiday on the Isle of Arran (again). We went last year, and completely fell in love with the place. And the idea to go to this lovely Scottish island was from one of the posts on the #AdventureCalling linky.
