This winter seems to have been one dominated by greyness and wetness, but at last we are seeing the start of spring weather with some drier, brighter days mixed in. At the moment though we still feel the need to get outdoors for a walk whenever there’s a break in the weather to get some much-needed fresh air and hopefully a little sunshine. One of our favourite walks is through the Wyre Forest. There are lots of mature trees there and we like to explore new paths when we go to discover some new bits. It’s a great way to connect with nature and there’s something about walking between the trees that feels good. If you are thinking of getting outdoors more and making the most of the countryside around you Globo Surf is a great place to start. It’s packed full of advice and ideas.
Saltrock provided us with fur-lined hoodies to take our walk. They are perfect for a dry spring day when you need some extra warmth, but don’t want too much bulk or the hassle of a waterproof. My ladies hoodie is supersoft and very comfortable. It’s roomy without being over large so it can fit over a layer or two without you feeling that you are all puffed up. Perfect for our sunny day’s walk through the fallen leaves and in search of spring flowers.
H loves anything soft and furry, so he jumped at the idea of a boys’ fur-lined hoodie. It’s been worn a lot in the time we’ve had it. It’s meant that I’ve tried it through the washing machine a few times and it’s still soft and looks like new. It might look a little on the big side, but that’s because we opted for a larger size because H liked it so much.
It was the first dry day for a while and H was keen to burn off some energy. There was plenty of running as well as some jumping, climbing and balancing. Fallen tree trunks are often left in place to decay and provide a habitat for animals, but it also provides some great natural play equipment. At the end of the walk there’s the children’s playground by the visitor centre to discover and a hot chocolate in the cafe to look forward to.
