- Government approved walk. 12 mile circular from my house. Took one hour to be on new (to me) public footpaths. The Shire is all rolling hills, so lots of views, and lots of hills! One great thing about exploring new paths is you get to nosy at the big houses hidden away from the road. Saw a few farm workers, one dog walker, lots of lambs and one daft sheep, birds with beaks full of nesting material and one muntjac. . #walksinthecountryside #walksinthecountry #ruralstuff #localpeople #covid19 #bravenewworld #dailyexerciseToday's government prescribed walk on my local public footpaths. Normally little used. Suddenly there are other people using them. Bugger off these are mine 😂 . Chatted (at the prescribed 2m) to three neighbours. Met two new neighbours. It's busy out in The Shire. . #walksinthecountryside #walksinthecountry #ruralstuff #localpeople #covid19 #bravenewworld #dailyexercise
