Saturday afternoon Family lockdown walk on a crisp sunny winters day. Usual busy start and only saw a handful of folks after Blackwood hill until the Covenanters Monument. Didn’t detour to the monument as wanted to leave it as something new on a future walk with being so close to home.

Enjoy when you go.
