More walking and then relaxing at Marwell

Today, the weather was still lovely so we decided to get out for another walk this morning.  We had a spa session booked at 1, so we decided we didn’t want to go too far today.  I found Walk 1819, from the Walkingworld website, which took us around Chilworth and Lordswood.  The walk took about 1.5 hours and took us through the village, around the Golf Course and through some of the Chilworth Forest.  It was fun being nosey at some of the large houses in Chilworth and working out which we’d like if we had the money!

We then had a very pleasant lunch by the water at the Fishers Pond.  The cygnets that Stef and I saw a couple of weeks ago had really grown but they were still grey and somewhat fluffy.  I had a chicken and bacon sandwich and it was a really generous sandwich on doorstop sized bread.
After lunch, Sarah went off for her pampering session at the Zuri Salon in Marwell Hotel.  I had a couple of hours to kill, so I popped into Marwell Zoo.  Marwell seems to have had a real baby boom in the last few months!  There were baby giraffe, ocelots, coati, warthog, zebra, rhea to name but a few.   They were all really sweet, but the new warthog made me laugh running around chasing it’s mum and trying to grab itself some milk!
Roll over mum
After Marwell, I went to the hotel for my pampering session.  I’d booked an Elemis Spa Ritual which was a two hour session including a full body massage and a facial.  It was a perfect end to a nice couple of days…shame I have to go back to work tomorrow!
