What a lovely day out. The weather was just about perfect. Cool (not hot) and no rain.

I have done this walk before and I enjoyed the second time just as much as the first time. Jazzy had so much info about the places we were passing. She definitely puts the effort in to keep us informed about our own “Backyard”…..
