Arlington Walk

After a very wet Monday evening it was a relief to wake up on Tuesday to a dry morning which gave us the green light for our walk.
Eight members, their wives, and one dog, duly assembled at the Yew Tree Pub in Arlington to start what turned out to be a varied walk. Having got the four stiles out of the way early, we duly reached the reservoir where it was quite apparent that the water level was particularly low for the time of year. We could well understand the Water company's plea for us to use less water!
After leaving the reservoir area and ascending a moderate slope our walk took us out into the countryside where we encountered one rather challenging muddy stretch. Whilst it took good balance and patience to deal with the mud hazard, no one seemed fazed by the experience, and we soon emerged back onto terra firma which led us to a winding lane and back to the Yew Tree.
As the food had been pre-ordered we were not kept waiting long for our meals, which were very well received and enjoyed. It happened to be the birthday of one of our party and we took the opportunity of celebrating the occasion.
It was good to see Ann on her second outing with the group and Michele for her first.
Washing machines were expected to be doing overtime later in the day.
