I do many very predictable things and have many very predictable days. Then sometimes the stars align and I have a really awesome day filled with awesome things that I have never done before! Wednesday was one of those days. I will start with the daytime activity. wait for it…… wait for it…… I went on a hike. (Dramatic pause)
The AWC has a hiking group that goes on hikes once a month in rain or shine. They rate the hikes in difficulty do you don’t get into something that you can’t do. I never go on these hikes because I don’t hike and am not really a nature girl. (understatement of the year) However, every year they go on a bluebell hike- sadly the flower not the ice cream- and it is billed as the hike to go on if you go on one all year. The difficulty rating out of 10 was a 1 and they promise you don’t even need hiking boots. I decided to go and look at some of this English countryside that people are always raving about. Wednesday was an absolutely beautiful day with sunshine and mild temperatures. There was a big group of us on the hike and it was really a lot of fun.
England has something called ‘right of way’ laws basically meaning that hikers/walkers can cross through anything they want to- people’s backyards farms or anything. Here are some of the pictures from the hike:

We all ended up at a little pub for lunch before heading back. I am definitely not taking up hiking and I probably won’t go on another one until the bluebell hike next year but it was a great way to see a little of the country.
Kick A Wednesday: Evening is coming soon!
