The Chase in May

It’s hard to believe that Tuesday, yesterday and today could have been consecutive days. After a day and a half of almost continuous rain, the skies are clear and blue, the sunshine warm and the breeze very pleasant – we need to be out somewhere… We’ll go for Cannock Chase – there are one or two wet places, but it’s mostly well-drained, with shingle and sand underfoot. 56 more words

Travel: A walk in Cannock Chase, England

The New Year’s air is crisp and chilly as I step onto the icy ground. Cannock Chase is always busy whenever I visit; bikers lifting their gear from muddy cars, small children wrapped in heavy layers of bright coats and scarves, happy dogs wagging their tails in excited anticipation for their midday walks. 1,010 more words
