 22nd Anniversary Walk..

Enjoyable albeit muddy (in parts) walk on Sunday, 28th January 2018, to celebrate our 22nd anniversary. After the walk, the group retired to the Five Bells, for an excellent Sunday lunch. Below are some photos from the day, including the traditional group shot, and one of Trevor finding his lost (expensive!) hat.  Thanks again go to Trevor for providing these photos.

 

 

 

21st Anniversary Walk..Jan 2017

Sunday 29th January 2017, saw us complete our 21st anniversary walk out in the Fens, followed by an enjoyable lunch at the Anchor.  Thanks to Chris for organising lunch, and to Trevor for taking the traditional group photo, which is shown below....

 

Port De Pollenca...Oct 2016

Below is the group photo (courtesy of Trevor) taken at the ApartHotel Flora, where we stayed during our recent trip to Mallorca.  Despite a less than welcoming start, when the transfer 'sauna' bus (no aircon) conked out, we all had a great time.  Did some lovely walks, good company, ate well, and drank too much, so all in all a typical BAR away trip!  Here's to the next one...I will be putting some more photos from our overseas excursion on a separate page, together with a selection from the recent Wild Camping Experience at Lode..so keep checking this website.

 

 

 

 I think this local road sign in Mallorquin, sums us up nicely - 'Beware! Ramblers'...

For those that haven't been, these videos from the Pollenca tourist board gives some great views of the resort of Port de Pollenca and Pollenca town.. enjoy

 

 

20th Anniversary Walk....31.01.2016

 

Wet weather couldn't dampen the spirits of the ramblers who took part in our 20th Anniversary Walk, on Sunday 31st January 2016.  After the walk, the group tucked in to a nice meal at the Anchor, and our thanks go to all the staff for making it a very enjoyable occasion, and to Chris for organising it!  Also thanks to Trevor, for taking the above photo (we won't mention the Journal), and deciding on the route taken for the day.  

 Lakes - October 2015 

Another very enjoyable long weekend away at Brotherswater, good weather, good walks, good food, and good company!  There are a selection of photos from David, Bob and Trevor which you can view by clicking on the menu under 'Lakes'.

Here's to next year, wherever that may be...watch this space, Cheers!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many congratulations to Trevor Fuller, for completing his pilgrimage walk on the 'Camino Ingles', covering 100 km from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela and gaining his prized certificate!  So be warned, he is now collecting the sponsorship donations!...As they say in Spanish (and on Trevor's tee-shirt)..El Dolor es temporal, algo la Gloria es para siempre!

 

....Watch 'Bob the Elder' getting a German lesson from a friendly local.....on one of our previous visits to Ruedesheim in Germany....!
