Oxford walks


I thoroughly enjoyed that too. There was less mud than I feared, and there were some good fungi. I am happy with ‘ti’ and with simple sentences. There is a better chance that I will understand.

A quick bump for the walk on Sat 9th Nov. The plan is to start at midday by the Trout Inn next to the Thames a short distance from Wolvercote (Port Meadow car park and buses from Oxford) and then head off to walk around Wytham Wood and back via Wytham village (pub and teashop). There should be plenty of ffwng on show and hopefully some good autumn colour. Do let me know beforehand, though, if you’re planning to come along! :slightly_smiling_face:
Hwyl, John


I’m planning to come on this walk! Bethan


I can’t make the walk – going to grandparents near Caer Loyw for fireworks, I’m afraid.


Another quick bump for Saturday’s walk :slightly_smiling_face:


I’m not sure about coming on this walk if the weather is bad! Forecast for tomorrow afternoon is rain… :frowning: Bethan


Yes, it doesn’t look very promising does it :frowning:
The forecast for the following day is much better though - would you be able to make it if we changed it to Sunday?


Yes I could make Sunday! How long is the walk ? ( I was tired yesterday after 3.5 miles!!) Bethan


We could cut it short a bit, but I think probably 4 to 5 miles is the shortest we could make it.
An alternative could be Port Meadow where we coul dmake it a shorter walk. The only other person who’s said they’re planning to come is Linda who’s one of the MK group bu tjoins us sometimes for walks - I’ll check with her what she thinks :slightly_smiling_face:


Helo pawb - heavy rain is forecast for later today (Sat 9th), so we’ve postponed the walk until tomorrow, Sun 10th Nov, for which the forecast is quite reasonable at the moment.

Also, the walk may be Port Meadow rather than Wytham Wood so, instead of outside The Trout Inn, we’ll be meeting in the Port Meadow car park (between Wolvercote village and The Trout) with the route to be decided on according to what people want to do on the day. :slightly_smiling_face:

Do please let me know if you’re thinking of joining us or have any questions :slightly_smiling_face:
Hwyl, John


Looking forward to joining you for this walk at midday tomorrow! :):smile: Hwyl Bethan


That’s meant to be a happy face!


PS There’ll be only a light breeze, but it’s coming from the NE over damp ground, so do remember to wrap up warm! :slightly_smiling_face:


Thank you John for your company a ’ scwrs ddiddorol’ on this lovely afternoon walking through the very wet Port Meadow, following yesterday’s rain. Hwyl Bethan


Diolch i ti Bethan! I enjoyed it - it was a good day despite the imminent prospect of Port Meadow turning into Port Lake! :slightly_smiling_face:


Well, it’s December in just over a week’s time, and people are probably going to be pretty busy getting ready for Christmas, and especially those with plantos. Is anyone interested, though, in having one more walk+sgwrs - weekend or weekday - before the end of the year? Or more? :slightly_smiling_face:
Could be an opportunity perhaps to escape from the Xmas merry-go-round for a morning or an afternoon?:woman_juggling::christmas_tree::santa::man_juggling:
Or, in the days before New Year, maybe an opportunity to blow the cobwebs away ? :wind_face::spider_web:
Could perhaps be combined with a spot of dog walking? :dog2:
Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions :slightly_smiling_face:
Hwyl, John

Possibly. As you know, I can’t do Sunday mornings, and I can’t usually do Saturdays, though I could do Sat 28 Dec as my friend is away. Assorted weekdays might be possible, depending on shop and other commitments.


There’s an outside chance I’ll be in Oxford on Sat 28 Dec, but otherwise I think I’ll wait till January to resume walking.


Linda (who’s not on the forum) is interested in a walk between Christmas and New Year, so maybe we can pencil in Sat 28 Dec and see how we go :slightly_smiling_face:


Unfortunately I won’t be able to make this but I hope to come on January walk. Bethan
