Thurstaston Common Walk March 2009

We had a wonderful walk in the spring sunshine, with our dog Fred. Starting off at Roydon Park, we headed through the woods to Thurstaston Common. On the way through the woods Fred took to chasing a grey squirrel along the ground and up a tree. It wasn't scared of him and came back down the tree to tease Fred into chasing him again.
Thurtaston Common is a natural wood, scrub and marsh land. We walked along the path before turning onto a minor path which crosses the swamp. Fred had a great time wading in the muck as usual.
After about a 1 mile we turned back and made our way onto the main path. It is an easy place to get lost, as there are many different paths you can take. Many looking the same. I grew up on the Wirral and would often go walking in this area along with many other areas along the Wirral Peninsula. Wirral is a fab place to visit, I love to visit home.
Along the main path we met up with many cocker spaniels and other dogs out for there morning walk.

The common is a very popular for dog walkers. Heading along the main track we then turned of again through the woods to the far side of the common on the edge of Roydon Park. We then headed back across the open common and picnic area to the car.

Next stop was Parkgate for lunch at The Quay and an ice cream for afters. Everyone had a wonderful time including Fred our dog.
