I follow The Pilgrim’s Trust on Instagram and reading through their current posts I came across these two links that you may enjoy reading:

1. BBC Travel and pilgrimage – I didn’t realise that the Camino de Santiago was only recently given a boost by Franco.

2. 10 Pilgrimages you might enjoy walking – I found this article to be of great interest due to my love of ‘going on pilgrimage’.

Its amazing just how many pilgrimage routes there are in the UK and they haven’t even mentioned St Cuthbert’s Way, St Augustine’s Way and The Two Saints Way.

Have you walked any of these pilgrimage routes? Which was your favourite?

I’ve started a new Instagram profile @overthehillstilltravelling for my travels if you’d like to follow. Give me a 👋👋 if you do….it’s relatively new, but I’m adding images as I go..

During one of my brief stays this month, I took the boobee to the beach. He had loads of fun and Granny got to do some nimble hops, skips and jumps across the rocks as he bounded along looking for puddles. All very well for him with his wellies, but I really didn’t want to get my shoes wet, so I had to do some fancy footwork to keep up with him and not wet my shoes. All went well, he kept his balance, running nimbly across the rocks like a wee goat, and then he decided to return to his earlier puddle that had lots of water and made lovely splashes….and then just as he was walking away….he reversed and sat down!!!! In the puddle 🤪🤪🤪🤪 OMG I laughed so much. He’s a minx.

🤣🤣🤣🤣 I don’t think he was expecting it to be cold…
His Peppa Pig wellies
He loves to collect things….a bit like his Granny 😍😍

He does this thing lately where he throws himself backwards and onto his bottom…lovely game…except in puddles. Fortunately we had a change of clothes (except spare socks and shoes) in his backpack and after he’d run around and splashed in more puddles, I carted him off the beach under my arm to the sidewalk where I managed to change his clothes while holding him up in the air….there was nowhere to sit, and coz he didn’t have spare shoes I couldn’t stand him on the ground. I phoned his parents after that to rescue us….he’s a right character. And although I’m quite fit, keeping up with a nearly 2 year old is a different ballgame…

I do love being a Granny and would love to have more time with him…
