Been walking

Picture of trees

Picture of the Curly Whirly FootbridgeThe weather turned out reasonably well today so I decided not to work on another page but went on a long walk instead. I walked down to Croft Wood, from where I crossed the M4 motorway to Burderop Wood and up to Brimble Hill. It was quite hazy, so the view over Swindon wasn't great. Continuing to Hodson I had hoped for a pint at the Calley Arms, unfortunately that turned out to be closed. Thirsty I continued through Hodson Valley to the "curly whirly footbridge" (that's what it's called in a leaflet I have) where I crossed the M4 again. The bridge is quite funny, I might post more pictures in another entry later. Through Coate Water Park and past Broome Manor Golf Club I returned to Croft Wood and finally back home. The walk took me just over three hours, I estimate I covered 6-8 miles.

Quite a nice change from sitting in front of a PC, as it looks like spring is really just around the corner expect more of the same over the next couple of months. And now I'm off to bed (after calling my mother).

Dodgy picture of the moment:

Isn't the curly whirly footbridge dodgy enough? I'll have another one tomorrow
