It was a warm sunny day. Some on the walks wished they’d worn shorts. Both walks were five miles. Eighteen arrived for the morning walk; eleven stayed for the afternoon one.
We met in the car park by Frensham Great Pond. In the morning we headed west and went past Frensham Manor and Hallsgrove Copse, through Spreakley, over the south branch of the River Wey, past Frensham church and back into Frensham Common. Our stop for coffee was later than usual, not because the leaders forgot about it, but because they found an ideal spot for us to sit—the recreation ground at Shortfield Common. We sat in comfort in sunshine on benches facing the cricket pitch. The late stop was forgiven.
After lunch we headed east and walked round Frensham Little Pond. On arriving back at the visitor centre some stopped for tea, cake and ice creams.
