Sedgwick

"What a perfect trail" was one comment I overheard on Sunday - but from 2 such experienced hares what else would we expect?

The growing pack met up on what must be one of the busiest country road junctions I have ever seen.  We had regulars, newbies, visitors and all ages from 8 to 74 - and what a fast moving pack it was.  Even when we came to the inevitable fish hook the front runners didn't have far to go to pick up the small knitting circle.  The checks worked perfectly taking us along the disused canal path where we could spot all the fairy art installations, under and over too may tunnels to count.  The volunteers and diggers working on connecting the Lancaster canal had to pause to let us by.

The first ‘Ramp/Wimbo’ split did its job bringing us all together at the perfectly selected and hidden beer stop - a Speedbump and Dormouse speciality.  Jelly Tot and Midget Gem had been carefully collecting flour 'to make bagels' they said - but it was used to great effect to splatter all over Tarty Totty.

And we were off again, the big hill we were promised was much steeper than it looked but was conquered by all at varying speeds.  We managed to outwit a field of extremely lively bullocks who seemed to want to play Ring a Ring a Roses - very fast.  Luckily no one fell down although Loose Elastic took the girls through a neighbouring field - their local knowledge paying off.  A second split took the Rambos over a plastic wrapped field of maize which was a new experience.

Coming back into Sedgewick there was an up the step diversion for those who completed the whole trail and a shortcut for those who didn't.  The circle was in 2 parts for those who had to leave - but it was good to welcome Flash from Motherhash and his Virgin daughter from Lancaster, see you again soon we hope!  The Elastic Totty family had kept us all on our toes with easy running from the parents and expert calling from the girls.  

Another good meal - as usual - from the Strickland Arms.  Thanks Hares and On On to who knows where with the Full Moon Septics.
