Virtual Walk Update, Sunday, January 25

Sunday, January 26, 2014

This week's walk was in Gloucestershire, along the Severn Way, between Tewkesbury and Worcester. Tewkesbury is a lovely upscale town with lots of tea shops, an impressive Abbey and beautiful half-timbered houses.

There are many riverside pubs along the Severn Way, some with accommodations, and this week-end they are all celebrating the birth of a daughter, Mia Grace, to Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall. The couple live on the Gloucestershire estate, Gatscombe, owned by Princess Anne, Zara Phillips' mother. Peter Phillips, Princess Anne's son, also lives on the estate with his Canadian-born wife, Autumn, and their two children.

Worcester approaches... was it really where Worcestershire Sauce was developed? I'll try to find out this week!

Thanks for reading,

    Good Morning to my world traveler friend...
    You are such a fount of information.
    I read the name Zara Phillips... and I think the name is familiar... Didn't she compete in the last Summer Olympics.... ?? in the equestrian... now I cannot remember which events.. her Grandmama the Queen was there to watch.. so it must have been Dressage or Show Jumping.. I think it was Jumping... I should have paid better attention... I never thought I might have a need for that information once the olympics were over.
    Thank you for sharing your walk.

    Not much going on in my world.. just another Ho-Hum day in Paradise.
    Take care, Hugs, Audra
