1st Weekend

This is the first weekend of serious training (ie longer than the paltry 5 mile walks we’ve been doing up to now). We needed to do a 4 hour walk this weekend so decided to walk along the Itchen Way from Southampton up towards Winchester and then turn back after a couple of hours. We had Jim (our 6 year old) so perhaps it was more of a nature ramble rather than full-on trekking. Anyway he was very proud to spot a deer, fungus on a tree that looked like poo, and went on to find at least twenty interesting wildlife features, including this bug (called “Bugwin”) which became his friend and hitched a ride on his face, ear, hair, neck and arms for a mile or two.
