National Dog Walking Day



CARERS WALK


 

On National Dog Walking day, there were more Valeways walkers than dog walkers strolling around Barry Island. The horrendous rainstorm that was predicted, did not materialise and the strollers enjoyed just a damp drizzle for most of the walk.

The very stylish headgear modelled by many walkers (Sandra, Angela, Janice and Jill) kept any raindrops at bay!

 



What Is Everyone Looking At?



CARERS WALK


So..  what is everyone looking at….a very unusual sight on the Carers walk……a lonesome swan on the sea. He must have lost his way en route to the lake in the Knap gardens!! No lonely walkers though, as everyone chatted on the scenic and storm free walk around Barry Island in very mild weather

 

 

 



Flying High At Barry Island



CARERS WALK


The Carers strollers were flying high at Barry Island on the post-Christmas ‘let’s walk the mince pies and Christmas puddings off’ walk. High winds and grey skies did not put off these hardy walkers from enjoying the cliffs and beaches…some even had a Christmas pudding ice cream at the end!!

 

 



The Wind Blown Hairstyles



CARERS WALK


The Carers stroll at Barry Island was a hair raising experience as the wind swirled around Nell’s point spoiling hairstyles! Still, ruffled hair is a small price to pay for a leisurely stroll, a chat with friends and of course, the Italian ice cream at the end!

Motivated by a Dog



CARERS WALK


We expect to see sun, sea and sand at Barry Island on the Carers walk….so were surprised to see an arthritic spaniel exercising his legs by swimming around Whitmore Bay. Inspired and motivated by the dog, we doggedly strolled around both headlands on a calm, chilly winter’s day. Our new walker was welcomed to the group and tucked into a delicious ice cream at the end!
