I always love updating you all with a Sunday Sevens! It’s been a busy weekend, so here’s a quick update.
David and I had a few days off work this week, so on Monday we headed towards RSPB Marshside near Southport for a few hours walking while overlooking hundreds of wading birds and gulls.
We spotted a few species we hadn’t seen before, like the shelduck and wigeon.
Riley in the Lake District:
Tuesday dawned grey with heavy rain, however we decided to continue up the M6 towards the Lake District with Riley and my brother in tow. Our destination was Grizedale Forest. On our journey we were hampered by car crashes and flooded roads. The rain thankfully stopped when we arrived at Grizedale. We then spent the next four hours walking paths that had turned into streams, losing our route and getting very muddy! It was a fun adventure!
This week, like last, has been hampered by longer days in work and late buses! My miles this week has been a lowly 36, bringing my annual total to 471 miles.
Book I am reading:
I’ve picked up Jeanette Winterson’s The Gap in Time, a retelling of Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale. Have you read this book? If so what were your thoughts?
Staying with Shakespeare, this Saturday David and I went to Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre to see a production of Macbeth (or the Scottish play). I’d not visited the Epstein, formerly the Neptune before. It is one of Liverpool’s smaller theatres and had a tired quaintness to it. I quite enjoyed the play but was not fussed with the actor (Sean Jones) who played Macbeth. I felt his voice wasn’t very strong.
Have you seen this play? What were your thoughts?
I finish this post after taking a fantastic, yet tiring, wind blown, five mile walk around Formby Beach today. Riley looked like he had a wonderful time! We even spotted a starfish or two!
So, that was my week, how was yours?
Thanks for reading, Christine x
Sunday Sevens is a series devised by Natalie at Threads and Bobbins!
Wow, another fantastic week. I love shelducks so nice to see one in your post. A couple of bloggers I follow have seen starfish recently. Sorry your Grizedale walk was a more like a Ghyll scramble! I haven’t been there for about ten years and would love to see all the sculptures. X
