Come walk with us……………

We spent a couple of very pleasant hours walking in the woods this afternoon after deciding to have an early lunch so that we didn’t have to rush back.
The trip in was OK until we were about 6 miles out then we picked up some heavy traffic so turned off onto the same route we took last time. Local knowledge, even though a bit dated now, still rules.

The car park was packed, but we managed to park under a tree in a little ‘alcove’  so no-one could park alongside us. I took a lot of pictures today, not all of which came out, but it was lovely to listen to the wind in the trees as it whispered on the breeze as we walked.
The pathways are more or less the same
and we found our ‘desres’ spot from years ago which is a lot more overgrown now
It still seems strange not having Maggie with us as she would have been running along the pathways ahead of us. She never went far.
I was really pleased to get some shots of a dragon fly today and also a damsel fly! They are so quick.

Years ago we knew which areas to avoid for adders and saw no snakes today as we walked down to the bottom of the plantation rather than up towards the top.
We did cross paths with a few people but there is so much space there, social distancing is a doddle.
Oh the peace and tranquility.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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. Oh my, how beautiful! I could almost ‘hear’ the silence there along with the wind. It’s great that you have an escape hatch (of sorts) for when things are crowded in your town. I’d never seen a damsel fly before, although we do get dragonflies around here and some of them are HUGE O_o I’m glad you had a pleasant Sunday Di! 🙂

    • Damsel flies come in blue, orange, green and red. I nearly missed this one.The dragon fly is great as you can see both pairs of wings even if a couple of shots are blurry as he was moving.
      It’s a lovely place, so restful.

  2. Beautiful photos Di! Your walk does sound heavenly, a gift for your soul.
