This morning we expected to be frozen in but the temperature hadn't even dropped below freezing overnight. If we'd known that, we'd have gone on to Bugsworth yesterday. Never mind, we'll stay here for a while longer, it's quiet and the dog walkers are well behaved hence the towpath is both poo and litter free.
This afternoon I decided I'd have to start trying to build up my stamina so we went for a long walk. Just after we set off it started snowing. It wasn't much but over on the hills towards New Mills it was sticking and the puddles in the fields were frozen.
We passed some lovely houses. This one was quite modest compared to some of the others!
It didn't feel very cold but there were icicles hanging in this tree.
We walked in a circle going towards High Lane and ended up at Ridge End at The Romper pub (now for sale) then cut across the back of the deer field back to the boat. Total distance was just over 3 miles, not bad to start with and hopefully I'll soon be back to walking our normal 5+ miles. Chico really enjoyed himself too.
I saw an advert for a porthole for dogs on the internet. If we could retro fit one in the boat Chico could watch the fish
