Tuesday Photo Challenge – Breathe

Breathe in the open spaces.
Oh how we loved the woods and the river to do just that.
Space was at a maximum with the minimum of human presence.
It was our own little world, time didn’t matter.

The woods are not as they were, the smell no longer of new growth but damp with decay.

On the river, the morning mist had a smell all of its own, you could breathe in and be one with nature, it was so clear and crisp away from the towns and traffic.

At festival time, you relished in the freedom of the boating life, made new friends, and picked up a few tips. Your nostrils were tantalised with the aroma of BBQ, herbs and spices, hot coffee, doughnuts and if it was a little chilly, wood burners!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Just love those photos, especially the early morning one in Pershore!

    • We had several mornings like that on our travels. Pershore is the deepest lock on the Avon and it’s really hard work operating the paddles and gates as they’re so heavy. It’s just so idyllic there, you don’t even mind getting mugged by the ducks!
