Pensive Pensitivity

It’s been another nice day, but the weather is going to turn for the weekend so we went out for some serious walking (read as good test for my new trainers).
We are very well placed here, not only for towns and shopping or rivers for puttering up and down on, but for tourist attractions, The Malvern Hills and fantastic scenic views.

Hubby has kindly compiled this panoramic view taken from Jubilee Hill on our ‘hike’ this afternoon, which he is paying for BIG TIME in the pain stakes having really pushed himself (aka overdone it).

I couldn’t tell you how high up we were but we were glad there were benches every 200 yards. I do not travel uphill very well, but going down seems to be much easier!
Bless him, Hubby has just looked it up and informs me it was 300 meters (981 feet give or take an inch).

The dog was in her element as it’s been such a long time since she was able to roam and explore like this. She met up with lots of other dogs and got tarty with most of them (she’s just finishing her season) but generally had a good time and is, like us, pretty exhausted. Guess we’ll all sleep well tonight.

Hubs took this pic of me on the sly:

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love the Malvern Hills area. Used to visit an Aunt in Fladbury and went into Pershore periodically. A really lovely area. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Lovely views! Uphill is a struggle, you’re right. Glad Maggie got a good run, and Yes, your shoes are awesome! Hope they were comfy 🙂
