#BEDM Hugo’s Haunts ~ A walk in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle .

Hugo is very lucky that the town we live in has an excellent dog friendly park! ย Some days we head down the fields to the river on our walks and occasionally we can be found whizzing round the Castle grounds.When I say whizzing, I mean Hugo is usually about a mile ahead of me.I most probably am trying to catch up with him…..or hyperventilating in a bush! ย Although today’s #BEDM ย prompt is meant to be TOP TIPS, I’m just going to show you a few piccies of my local park and tiny Castle instead….

Autumn colours in the Park.

Late afternoon and I went for a wander in our local park. Leaves crunched underfoot and grey clouds threatened showers. The Autumn colours still shone through.
