After our cereal and croissants in Shrewsbury, we set off for Bristol, stopping at Asda for fuel and a picnic on the way out of the town. We took the road directly south to Symonds Yat Rock which was unfortunately the main road through the area and was very busy with traffic going both ways and many many lorries, so it was a slow, fairly painful journey.
We had a cup of tea at the top of the hill, then took our picnic down to the river where we ate it watching the local entertainment of canoeists posting in the rapids.
We had started off following the yellow arrows for a circular walk, but quickly lost them, so followed the river for a while until we could find a path back up the hill. It turned into a rather longer walk than it was meant to be. We definitely deserved the tea and cake back at the café.
We set off again for Bristol and arrived at Becky and David's just before 4.
We were fed a lovely dinner of home made pizza and salad and chocolate cheese cake and prosecco!Read more
