Walks from the front door

I've said it before, but we are very lucky where we live. It's suburbia and there is a huge amount of traffic and the almost constant hum of the M25 in the background BUT we do have some amazing walks from our front door.
We tried a new one today which was particularly lovely along the Wey River and Wey Navigation.
We saw ducklings, goslings and cygnets; stopped for brunch along the way and generally had a very pleasant walk stretching about 6 miles, door to door. All in all a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning.

Looking back into Weybridge


The first set of goslings 

Cygnets - from a safe distance 

Coxes Lock - once a mill, now luxury flats!

  1. It looks like a beautiful way to start your day. There's something about being near water that is so relaxing.

    1. That's a shame, we had lots of sunshine. Hopefully, you'll have a better day today.

  4. Definitely a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning. Unfortunately I had to go into town to do some errands, it was far too busy for my liking, your morning would have been more my choice. X

    1. If only every weekend could start like that! I do try to aim to do as many jobs/chores/errands as possible before the weekend (even when I was working full time), but obviously it doesn't always work out!! Hopefully your next weekend will be more relaxing.
