Walking and Rehyrdating with the Water-To-Go Bottle

  This week I went out for another Cornish winter walk to soak up a bit of the non-rainy weather and to test out my new Water-to-Go bottle. Compared to a lot of the weather recently it was gorgeous, totally stunning with only 60% or so cloud coverage – pretty much tropical! We stomped through the countryside spotting wildlife, livestock, mud and other such bumpkiness (I’m pretty sure I just invented that word – someone make sure I get credit…

National Trust – Glendurgan

I’m a National Trust member, I mainly joined to make use of the free parking at their many beaches. However I do like to take the odd walk round one of their establishments. Glendurgan is a great morning or afternoon out (you’d be stretched to spend all day there) It’s a nice walk down through the well maintained gardens to Durgan beach (you do have to walk back up though) Oh and did I mention – IT’S GOT A FREAKING…
