I loved this place and remember how the woods echoed with birdsong and the animals came to drink.
It wasn’t a raging torrent, just a small stream trickling its way down into the valley, but the peace and tranquility was sufficient to calm my senses and soothe my battered spirit.
The landscape has changed due to the collapse of the road, but I hope Nature reclaims what is hers and the water dams to cascade over the boulders in a gentle waterfall.
In time the stones will become smooth and rounded, and the animals will come again.
We all need our little piece of natural Heaven.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
