The second walk for health with ABCC took place today. I enjoyed it despite the miserable weather. (Last week was beautiful) We walked a little further this week and our walk took us through Stanley Park to the Isla Gladstone Conservatory were we had a rest and a cup of coffee ( no cakes) though they looked very tempting. There is a lovely cafe in the conservatory with a very comprehensive menu at competitive prices. The conservatory has been beautifully restored and converted with much care, a Victorian glass house which is just right in the setting of the park which itself has been restored and although the rose gardens have finished for the year there is still lots of work taking place and it is looking more open and accessible than I remember. Weddings and other events are licensed to take place in which is a beautiful (and warm) venue. After our rest, we walked back around the lake (sorry to disappoint you ducks, I’ll take bread next time) We walked back to ABCC by which time I admit I was well and truly finished and thank you Tom for the much-needed hot drink and rest. I felt as though I had completed a marathon but this small walk was an achievement for me and I need the help and encouragement of the rest of the group . I wouldn’t have attempted it on my own. SO , if you need company and motivation for a healthy exercise/ walk next week we will be doing it again. Tuesday , 1:30 , 15th Nov. Thanks for the company folks , Tom, and Kathy for your support and encouragement . See you next week. ( My joints should have recovered by then !!!)
