On Wednesday morning, we took Oz's advice
and went on a NEW(ish) Walk.
Only newish because we have been there before,
a long time ago.
|An old photo of us looking innocent.|
The plan was to go EARLY, before too many people were around.
We were going to walk over the BIG bridge
on the south side, then through the playing fields
to the Pedestrian bridge, and all the way back to the car.
It was dark when we arrived (the bridge does have lights)
but found the under bridge walkway fenced off.
We clambered up through the bushes and
walked across the north side of the bridge.
We had to keep walking because there were a few
people out on the narrow walkway.
When we got to the end of the bridge,
Dui did a poo.
While SHE was cleaning that up, our leads
got tangled. And just as SHE had them sorted,
some walkers came by with a yappy dog.
We became tangled again.
More people and dogs came by. We went
down a side street, but there were
GROUPS of people with Personal Trainers;
cyclists, groups of runners, and
people with dogs.
Not even 6:00 a.m and it was crowded.
We walked under the railway bridge,
across the little bridge and up the
other side of the river......again, under the railway bridge,
stopping whenever a cyclist, runner, or walker
When we got back to the car, it was light.
SHE noticed the bridge under path was
fenced on the end--not on the path!
We have christened it, the NEVER AGAIN walk!
