Escapism and mental health are important for our wellbeing. Walking is one hobby to get into, wind down, relax and see some amazing places and areas you normally wouldn’t.
Yorkshire is blessed with some wonderful waterways, rivers and canals that bring other new hobbies that can help your mind and body.
In Skipton I met up with Jo Moseley to take part in some paddle boarding on the Leeds-Liverpool canal. Calm water, the sun shining and surrounded by the peaks of the Yorkshire Dales. What a refreshing thing to do.
It was such a marvelous experience that even Malc my dog also got involved in.
