"Today Jean led 12 walkers from Notton, taking in Royston, Barnsley canal, and the Blue Lagoon, 7 miles in total. What a grand time we had! The weather was very kind, warm, with plenty of cloud, and a little breeze. We had lunch by the Blue Lagoon, so peaceful, listening to the birds and watching the swans, just perfect.
We had laughter all the way (bearing in mind, Jean did have the naughty club with her) Ha ha, you know who you are!
It was great to see people we've not seen for months. Having Dorothy back, with her jay-cloths, spare knickers and hat was fantastic, very reassuring. She'd forgotten her secateurs but will have them next time. Pat C had a pair though, so all eventualities were covered.
Back to Notton Post Office for coffee and cake, where Elaine and Jane came to meet us and say hello.
Lovely end to a enjoyable day."
