Spotted this little fella on our 49th walk. Sinister or sweet? Have to admit I'm torn! πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ . . . . #100MappyDays #walking #weekendwalk #walkingchallenge #lovedorset #wathwalk #lovemaps #useamap #followaroute #followingamap #wooded #wood #trees #toy #creepy #creepytoys #donotcross
The #100MappyDays number 49 route. 8.78 miles to be exact. Lovely route, taking in a quick hill, wooded walking, small villages/hamlets and Wareham Forest. In the summer there will be huge colourful rhododendrons in the woods to feast eyes upon! . . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #lovedorset #wathwalk #lovemaps #OSmaps #getoutside #useamap #followingamap #dorset #bereregis #bloxworth #hyde #ryehill #riverpiddle
#100MappyDays Day 49. Gotta love our Dorset place names. #piddlehinton #piddletrenthide #tolpuddle #riverpiddle I guess I could have hopped two miles up the road in a northerly direction, locals are used to immature sniggers about the much loved #Shitterton ... πŸ˜‚ . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #lovedorset #wathwalk #photography #photographic #signpost #oldsignpost #placenames #funnyplacenames #getoutside #useamap #OSmaps #exploredorset #briantspuddle #bereregis #dorset #turnerspuddle
#100MappyDays number 49. The last field we passed after just under 9 miles and it was so photogenic. The moon was just up, it was about 4pm and the sun glowed with such happiness, casting this wonderful contrast over the ploughed furrows. This is part of the reason I love walking. It gives me time to appreciate my surroundings. . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #followaroute #followingamap #OSmaps #getoutside #wathwalk #photography #photographic #inspiringphotos #peaceful #landscape #landscapephotography #field #ploughedfield #Dorset #lovedorset #lovemaps #useamap
#100MappyDays number 49. Nearly 9 miles achieved today. Y'know this could be anywhere on the planet but it's in l'il old Wareham Forest, in Dorset. Blue skies to bask under and gorgeous landscapes to soak up. My idea of heaven today! . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #lovedorset #wathwalk #sunshine #sunshineglow #getoutside #lovemaps #useamap #OSmaps #landscape #photography #photographic #inspiringphotos #peaceful #landscapephotography #trees #path #bluesky
#100MappyDays number 49 happened today... IN GLORIOUS SUNSHINE... IN NOVEMBER!! The warmth, the rays and the fresh air were delicious and may have just made me a little more bonkers than usual. It was nearly 9 miles of pure outdoor bliss. Can't get any more fun than that. So if you choose to scroll to the second pic, once you've seen it you cannot unsee it. Simples. You have been warned! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ . . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #lovedorset #wathwalk #sunshine #sunshineglow #happyface #crazy #crazyface #nofilterneeded
Day 47 #100MappyDays 31st October took me, three other staff and twenty-something students to London for the day. There was (thankfully) a little walking involved, with an interesting route plotted from one museum to another. What a bonus that it took us through the very lovely and the unseasonably warm, Holland Park! . . . . #walkingchallenge #walking #walks #wathwalk #urban #urbanwalk #lovemaps #OSmaps #getoutside #useamap #followaroute #followingamap #London #park #londonparks #trees #path
#100MappyDays number 48. The low November sun at around 4pm created a tasteful glow across the trees. Light like this is just photographically delicious!

#100MappyDays number 48 was only a 4-miler. Apart from being incredibly beautiful and interesting, as we walked paths neither of us had ever been on before, we also seem to have walked a route that is strangely Queen-like! A right Royal adventure... πŸ‘ΈπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ . . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #followaroute #followingamap #OSmaps #getoutside #wathwalk #lovemaps #lovedorset #hiking #royalty #royal #royalresemblance #queen #queenelizabeth
This was Day 46 of our #100mappydays challenge. OS map clearly showed a little footpath which I'd earmarked as part of our route... we ended up stuck in a turnip field and executing a little scramble through trees and bushes with a final 8ft drop to get back to our path. Why do farmers ignore our rights of way? πŸ˜” On a plus... out of every cloud and all that... if we hadn't wandered further along the turnip field, we'd have missed this wonderful view of Colmer's Hill. πŸ˜ŠπŸ“· . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #lovedorset #wathwalk #lovemaps #OSmaps #getoutside #useamap #followingamap #landscape #landscapephotography #hills #colmershill #inspiringphotos #peaceful
I've been really quiet due to family circumstances but finally escaped for walk number 46 of my #100MappyDays challenge. It took us on a 5.3 miles circular from Symondsbury in Dorset, out to the coast path at Eype and back. That was after visiting an amazing exhibition of paintings by #colinbentleyartist at the Tythe Barn. . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #followaroute #followingamap #OSmaps #getoutside #lovemaps #useamap #doors #door #olddoor #Dorset #lovedorset
#100MappyDays Day 39 and 4.4 miles. Full of summer cold and painful sinuses today, so although we didn't plan to go far, it was good to get a brisk early evening walk under our belts to clear the lungs and tubes! Loving getting the maps out so regularly too at the moment. I'm sure there must be some therapy in that... . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #followingamap #OSmaps #getoutside #wathwalk #photography #photographic #inspiringphotos #peaceful #landscape #harbour #bay #Poole #pooleharbour #coastalwalk #coast #pooleharbourtrail #sunset #pier #lakepier
#100MappyDays number 38 - 5.9 challenging miles covered. This stretch of path is graded by the SWCP association as severe and I can see why as there were a few tricky boulders to negotiate. One shouldn't be put off attempting this walk however, with good, stout footwear, a fair level of fitness and plenty of water on board. The lady in the Tourist Information centre was very keen to check such credentials about my person, before releasing the bus timetable to me for our return journey! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ƒπŸšŒ

#100MappyDays number 36. Due to tricky family circumstances l'm very behind in my 100 days of following a map in a 365 day period but am still thoroughly enjoying giving it a go! A few days in Cornwall have given us new opportunities plus a revisit of some memories from our 2011 SWCP adventure. . . . #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #lovemaps #lovecornwall #cornwall #Cornish #coastalwalk #OSapp #osmap #OSmaps #useamap #cliff #clifftop #sea #landscape #landscapephotography #inspiringphotos #peaceful #inspired #SWCP #southwestcoastpath
#100MappyDays this week involved us doing two and a half days of paddling along the canal.

My #100MappyDays challenge has brought us to some amazing places - like this little haven. It's called The Punchbowl and is a short walk from Blorenge, near Abergavenny. The fun of planning a route and following a map (whether paper or app) is really motivating and even when hectic, gives us a reason to push to get out there, if only for a wee ramble. Hoping to still make the hundred by 31/12 but have a long way to go! . . . #GetOutside #OSapp #osmap #lovemaps #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #monmouthshire #breconbeacons #hills #blorenge #wathwalk #photography #photographic #inspiringphotos #peaceful #landscape #ponds #pond #naturephotography #nature #water #panorama #Abergavenny #punchbowl
Where 25th #100MappyDays started and finished. 3.5 miles up Blorenge 'Mountain' (it's steep - but not quite a mountain πŸ˜‰).

#100MappyDays number 25 - back up in the Brecon Beacons. Short 3.5 miles exploring the Blorenge, the Punchbowl and a stretch of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal new to me. Not to mention a happy birthday walk for Mike! . . . #walking #weekendwalk #walkingchallenge #lovewales #OSapp #osmap #lovemaps #OSmaps #followaroute #monmouthshire #breconbeacons #hills #blorenge
24th #100MappyDays was a good 3-hour stomp around the Dorset countryside. 7.5 miles and surrounded by iron age history. ⛏ The small loop on the right of the map is the full circuit of Maiden Castle. πŸŒ„πŸšΆπŸ‘£ . . . #GetOutside #useamap #OSapp #OSmaps #osmap #followaroute #lovemaps #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #weekendwalk #lovedorset #wathwalk #maidencastle #martinstown #ironage #tumuli #tumulus #barrow #longbarrow
#100MappyDays number 24. A lovely 7.5 miles from Martinstown, up to Maiden Castle (did the full perimeter) and on up to the barrows above the South Dorset Ridgeway.

#100MappyDays number 22 Biddle Street, Gang Wall Yatton to the River Yeo and back. (We used to call Gang Wall the Jungalow as kids!)

#100MappyDays number 23 - a much needed and uplifting walk after a tricky week with family circumstances. We followed an adventurous little trail along part of the Beacons Way. Loved that we could see the back end of the Sugar Loaf and Table Mountain. So exhilarated but then soooo disappointed when I realised I've missed out on my #OSmaps freebie voucher by less than 24 hours. πŸ˜” . . . #GetOutside #OSapp #osmap #lovemaps #walking #walks #walkingchallenge #hiking #hikingadventures #followaroute #powys #wathwalk #photography #photographic #inspiringphotos #peaceful #landscape #brecon #breconbeacons #voucher #hills

15th #100MappyDays saw me on a short 2-3 miles through Great Bradley Woods, near Frome in Somerset.

13th #100MappyDays took us past the old entrance to Tilly Whim quarry caves. Way back then, industry was concerned with architecture and aesthetic, as well as output.

#100MappyDays number 13 and my first in three weeks. This was a gentle recovery walk with only a few inclines. Can't beat the sea air, snatching precious glimpses of wildlife and feeling the satisfaction of 5.5 miles under my belt, post-op. πŸ˜„πŸ‘£ . . . #lovedorset #lovemaps #OSapp #OSmaps #followaroute #getoutside #useamap #walking #weekendwalk #walkingchallenge #hiking #SWCP #southwestcoastpath #swanage #coastalwalk #followtheacorn #nationaltrail #coast #circularwalk #jurassiccoast #Dorset #dorsetlife #dorsetwildlife #
Just under 9km for my 13th gentle-ish #100MappyDays walk.

Day 9 #100MappyDays from mid-Feb. Upton Heath is so beautiful, close to the town but a million miles from anyone or anything. Home to all the species of reptile in the UK I believe.

#100MappyDays challenge has been unexpectedly neglected during a post-op recoup. Rewind back to mid-Feb however and you'll find us on a short little three miles Mappy wander around Upton Heath. We discovered at the END of the walk that much of the OS marked route was actually closed... I can understand why. The mud was the biggest obstacle, but fun!

4th #100MappyDays Sometimes the way is harder than you expected and often you'll need to figure your own way through... and even when you DO make it through, the mud is slowing while the wind and rain are relentless.
