I took today's photo whilst we were waiting for the Nordic Walking to start. We were determined to be on time, actually arriving 20 minutes too early, so I pottered around the car park with my phone and took some photos of the river bank and the willows.
As for the Nordic walking ... I loved it! I can see it will be something I can do regularly and I'll definitely benefit from the exercise. My friend found it more difficult and has been advised to go on a one-to-one session so I don't know yet whether she plans to commit to it. If she does, I will still go to the Monday session in Malmesbury with her but I will also investigate a group closer to home, in Avebury, for myself. Malmesbury is a 50 minute drive each way where Avebury is only 25 minutes each way, so there's a big difference in terms of time and effort to get to the meeting points. I'll aim to do two walks a week once I've done the introductory session but my first priority will be to invest in some new walking boots as my existing ones aren't up to the job.
