A much quieter week this week with Dexter going away on holiday with his owners so i treated Alfie to 2 new walks for him.
With Monday being a Bank Holiday it gave my wife Vanessa a chance to join the good life and she came with us. I decided to take a trip to one of my favourite local areas that being Styal Country Park and Quarry Bank Mill.
I have done loads of walks around here and the routes can be varied with lots of different paths to take with a previous walk totally around 13 miles. You can also include a fantastic walked called Manchester Airport Runway 2 Trail that coincidentally i took Alfie around this week as well.
This walk is not only an awesome walk for dogs but it gives me a chance to take in one of my other passions and that's aircraft spotting. There cant be that many airports in the UK where you can get amazing views of a great percentage of the runways and also get very close at times to the aircraft.
Seeing the Emirates A380 come buzzing over your head face on is a daunting task the first time you do it.
We also did my local sports fields a couple of times which has a total of 20 football pitches and can incorporated Kenworthy Woods and Chorlton Water Park. I am so lucky where i live for dog walking as once i walk the first 200 metres from my house i don't actually have to set foot on more than another 400 metres of tarmac in a 4 hour walk. Plus there's so many different routes and trails i can take there's always somewhere different to go.
When i get time one day i want to start looking into writing reviews and a guide to different places in the area people can take their dogs. I can thank Gary Box who runs Northampton Dog Walker for the idea.
So onto another week of dog walking and i hope everyone has a good week.
