Phew! What a year!
I think 2017 has been a wonderful year for David and I! What an adventure 2017 has truly been! I will think back at all the wonderful places and sights we have seen and feel blessed we were able to share them together! Here’s my twelve pictures that sum up our 2017!
2017 started with an eight mile walk around Coniston. We took a detour to visit Banishead Quarry.
Not everything was plain sailing in 2017. We suffered five deaths in our aviary. Poor Tarn, a Blue Faced Parrot Finch was one of the hardest to bare.
I treated mum to a special birthday afternoon tea at Liverpool’s Jam restaurant.
Riley enjoyed many walks with David and I in 2017. None more so than at the beach!
Which way should we go?
I embarked on my first wild swim of the season! Crummock Water, was choppy, chilly but exhilarating!

June was all about The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild. Part of the month long celebration we took a trip to Claremont Farm on the Wirral to pick our own strawberries!
July was a fun filled month. We went wildlife spotting at Mere Sand’s Wood, took a visit to Birmingham’s Big Sleuth and had a two nights stay in the Lakes. A ten mile walk around Beda Fell and Angle Tarn Pikes was exhausting!
Following in much the same vein as July, August seen many more days out. Partaking in my my first Welsh wild swim was simply outstanding!

The dawn of autumn saw David and I head towards Morecambe and Leighton Moss RSPB Nature Reserve in search of more wildlife.
I surprised myself by completing the #walk1000miles challenge some two months earlier than expected. I completed on the 8th October 2017. 1000 miles + has been walked to date!

The only highlight of this dark, dreary month was a theatre visit to The Liverpool Empire to see the 10th Anniversary of War Horse.
December is again undoubtedly all about Christmas. This year David and I played host to family for Christmas dinner. I have to admit it’s been a very tiring month! Here’s to a more relaxing start to 2018!
I wish you all good health and happiness for the new year ahead! Let’s make 2018 a year to remember!
Thanks for your continued support,
