Family Walk

It’s been a busy week. I really needed to get on with some book editing so I needed a couple of days away from the blog to get some more done. I mentioned before that I’m helping a friend with her third fantasy novel – read about it here.

I did have a lovely trip out on Sunday though. Our daughter lives close to Druridge Bay Country Park. We (K, myself, daughter, son and dog) went for a walk (or in my case, a scoot – I use a disability scooter) around the lake that afternoon. The afternoon sun was shining but clouds were beginning to gather and it was cold.

The paths are good, so despite the mock threats, there were plenty of routes round the lake without negotiating this row of stepping stones.

There were lots of families, dog walkers and cyclists about and Buddy the labrador was in his element. He absolutely loves it when the whole family is together. He wasn’t sure about the swans though. They had come out of the water along with the ducks and a large flock of gulls when someone started to feed them.

We all went back to daughter’s house for hot drinks. I’d lost all feeling in my fingers, despite gloves, so knitting was out of the question for at least half an hour. I was soon back at the socks though!

It was so good to be out with the family – it’s not often that we do something all together like that. Do you have a family activity that everyone enjoys?


I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.

  1. That looks like a lovely place to walk! It’s great you got to do it as a family:)
    We regularly spend time together as a family. Our favorite thing to do is go out to a restaurant:) We get to just relax and talk. It really makes for a nice visit.
