Greenlaning in Elsie Mo


Landie, now namd Elsie Mo (after a guest beer in the pub we ended up at), took her first greenlaning trip today after a long time off the road. Weather was fab and luckily (as we had the hood off) the sun didn't beat down until mid afternoon, but it was still wonderfully warm. Took a picnic and went along three greenlanes near to us. Greenlanes are byeways that you sometimes see signposted off main roads and look like tracks through fields etc.

Found a lovely little spot to have a warm drink of water (yuk) and pick some different grasses to find out about next week. Had a brief wander through the beautiful countryside to witness lots of pooing cows!

Lots of discussion during the day on various interesting topics, most of which I can't remember (as usual), but some of it was on the workings of the Landie and cars in general.

Ended up at this rather gorgeous, friendly, pub with good kiddie's play area, for a lovely refreshing cold drink or two. Then home for a good old scrub up - we are all filthy!
