Walking in Circles

On Saturday we found ourselves at Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield (I say 'found' because we had planned to go further afield but time ran out on us). The chap in the visitor centre handed us a map and with great confidence explained where we were and suggested a good five/six mile walk taking in various sections of the park including viewing some wild ponies. (I had been there once as a child but didn't realise the park was that large). So, wild ponies bound we strode off as we thought best. 3 hours later having found no ponies, and having taken in the same lake twice, we found ourselves at what we thought was our car park, only to discover we were a good mile away! It was all good fun though and there was plenty of sunshine and not even a drop of rain. A fun day afternoon out and some good exercise but perhaps we need to brush up on our orienteering skills!

    Just buy a GPS receiver. No circle–walking or lost cars then…
