Boxing Day Bumble

Boxing Day Bumble - Old Wolverton Church
Boxing Day Bumble

It would be remiss of me to recommend a boxing day bumble, as a way of burning off the Christmas excesses, as I did on twitter, without going for one myself.


So, leaving Zoe with the puppy (he’s still in need of one last injection), Bubs and I headed out for a short walk.

Boxing Day Bumble

Deciding to head out past the church we meandered through the park and across the road, lightly dressed in some of our Christmas presents, the winter sun was beating down on us and it felt lovely.

Walking along together, the little lady and I were laughing and joking, as we so often do. Pointing out the scratching Squirrels, as they hunted the rotting leaf litter for the odd hidden nut; or checking the fields for the local Alpaca.

Ridging the hill that contains Old Wolverton church, as we looked out down through the Ouse Valley, it was clear that we had made a minor error. Once away from the shelter of the bushes the ice could be felt in the wind. And being the Ouse Valley, that wind can really whip through.

After passing the mother of our new pup walking the other way, bubs and I decided that it was getting way to cold, so rather than a long walk in jumpers (and in her case a dress), we would cut back across the fields, and attempt a warmer walk tomorrow.

  1. Boxing Day walks are also a big tradition in our house and this sounds like our sort of walk after a day of food and drink excess. We opted for a very short local walk this year but it was nice just to stretch the legs. Thanks for joining us on #adventurecalling . I hope you can tomorrow when it opens again.

  2. We went for a lovely walk on Boxing Day, it’s definitely better than hitting the shops. I really don’t see the attraction of fighting through crowds! It looks like you had a lovely walk, although I felt cold just looking at your daughter. Thanks for sharing with us #AdventureCalling
