349/366 Country Walking Magazine

The August edition was loaded with articles associating walks with famous authors. Who doesn’t love Winnie the Pooh and his friends? Have you played Pooh-Sticks? It’s great fun. What would it be to play it off the original bridge in the Hundred Acre Wood. Of Pooh’s friends, Tigger would be the most annoying if it weren’t for Owl (Wol) intervening, the bounciness would drive me up the wall, but I wouldn’t be without either of them because they bring fun and adventure to the day, whilst I like and enjoy Piglets company, I think it is Eyore whom I gravitate towards. If I could just make him laugh once a day, that would be excellent.

George Orwell wrote the two books that I know; 1984 and Animal Farm, I can’t say that I necessarily enjoyed reading them, but they were both absolutely gripping. Would I want to visit the Isle of Jura, where he worked? I think it must be a beautiful part of the world. Certainly excellent for viewing the night sky. Apart from Smith, it’s very difficult to empathise with any of the characters (except perhaps the cart horses).

I’ve been to Edinburgh a couple of times. Once for the Christmas Market, it was very good, but it was massively crowded. Apparently Victoria Street was a model for Diagon Alley, You may not like, or even have read the Harry Potter series, but I have the utmost respect for J.K. Rowling. There is no doubt that the books are very readable at one point we had to buy two copies of the books because we didn’t want to share. We enjoyed watching the TV series – Strike. Hopefully they will do more.

I’ve never done any of the walks in the magazine, but I do enjoy reading about them. Another aspect to walking is Geocaching. I did one this morning, it was very well concealed, but it was easy to find. It’s in a location where people would be unlikely to see accidentally. There appear to be quite a few caches in Gosport, I should put some effort in to finding them. No idea what Geocaching is? I might need to do a piece on it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
