The day started with sunshine so I decided to take Ben for a long walk along the Stafford to Newport Greenway. This is a leisure trail for walkers, bikers, dog walkers as well as horse riders. We started by bridge 35A which is railway bridge which used to carry the Stafford to Shrewsbury Railway over the canal and headed towards Newport, Shropshire.
It was a lovely walk with lots of greenery for Ben to sniff and water. The wild flowers were amazing with masses of primroses, wood anemones and celandines. We met other dog walkers, a few cyclists as it's part of Route 55 and a pair of horses with their riders which Ben looked warily at from my side on his lead. Back on the boat he needed his legs washed as he'd found some dirty black mud in a ditch.
We decided to have Sunday lunch so we went to 'The Boat' .......very nice too, no dishes to do today.The rest of the afternoon was spent being thoroughly lazy reading the newspapers......oh what a lovely life we lead.
