Enjoying walking the dog by the river Adur

As the spring weather is here, I'm making more of an effort to get out and about, I'm also nagging myself to blog more!


I am still 'iffy' about using my stick when I walk - despite falling an impressive 3 times last week - because I worry it makes me look old. Obviously I don't worry that I'll look a prat if I fall over.



So a plea to other mildly disabled or wobbly folk - and to stick suppliers everywhere - what's a good stick to use that will still look cool? Feel free to let me know in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter (links in the sidebar)


Anyway - on with the walk. Mr TS and I decided to take her ladyship Fizz the border terrier for a stroll along the River Adur. We only walked from the airport at Shoreham as far as the first car park but it was a nice meander, the weather was lovely as were the views and Fizz enjoyed herself.

 Despite the lack of rain and the ground looking parched, Fizz, of course, managed to run through the gloopy silt and mud minutes before getting back to the car.

On the whole though it's a good walk for dogs, minimal livestock on the west side of the river, and good views so that if there are sheep you have plenty of time to get the dog back on a lead. No roads nearby and a river for getting muddy in. Not too many walkers but enough to be friendly and enough dogs that Fizz had a nice play too.

Have you been out walking lately?
