Big walk

Up early today, the Littlies off with their Dad for a trip to Cambridge, a game of golf and a visit from their Step Mum's parents... us Biggies went for a walk in the country while the washing was drying.

We headed off to Little Gransden for the 'Blondie Series - Rip Her to Shreds' circular walk - 8 caches, each with a toy creature glued to the lid that could rip you to shreds (crocodile, shark, lion, etc). After the heavy rain overnight, today was sunny. There was hardly a cloud in the sky, but it was busy with twittering skylarks and a continuous procession of gliders being towed aloft.

We stopped for lunch before the last cache at the Crown and Cushion pub which to our surprise served Indonesian food ~ I tried the Opor, a mild and fragrant yellow curry, Big Blue One opted for Chicken Satay with pickled cucumber and 3 dips including a chilli oil that could blow your head off with one drop!

We collected the last of the circular caches then had a look at the Gransden Post Mill, the oldest non-working one in England.

 All-in-all, we had covered 6 miles.

Back home for a quick cup of tea, then off to collect The Littlies and then to BA and B's for the evening.

17660 steps!
Happy Days!
