Yesterday we travelled to the cathedral city of Lichfield to take part in a Birmingham Hash House Harriers event.
We arrived late and had to find a parking space, buying a parking ticket proved a challenge. We found the venue, fortunately the hashers were still drinking.
We eventually circled up and the hare “Festering Gash” described the symbols used on the trail.
Walkers and runners set off through the city centre, watched by rather bemused Saturday shoppers.
We soon lost the runners, except “Marvin” in the red T-shirt. he lost the runners too. We wandered past busy shops and cafes.
As we walked up towards the Cathedral Close there was
a pool on the left.
The Cathedral overlooks beautiful English countryside.
The front was very impressive and close to the house where Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin’s Grandfather had lived.
We then walked on into a park, close to the registry office, newly married couples taking photo opportunities amongst the beautiful flowers and attractive surroundings.
Families were enjoying the fine weather.
Finally we headed to the pub for a refreshing drink, we enjoyed a tour of Lichfield, we sadly had to leave before the down downs and the pleasures of toasting marshmallows on a fire pit, our time had ran out in the carpark.
