Round the Bend

Becky (the Queen of Squares) is dipping her toes back into blogging this month and encouraging us to get outside and take a few steps each day during November to help survive those endless grey days. And to share a photo or two while we are at it. Square of course.

This week I am looking at things closer to home. Living as I do in the countryside I only have to walk out of my front door to be surrounded by fields and views of the hills and a glimpse of the sea. I know I am very lucky to have all this space and beauty.

Horse and rider coming round the bend. As this road leads to the Stables I often encounter riders on my walks

    And another very pleasing composition, Jude.

      I heard him coming so waited for him. Should have been a bit closer though for a better shot of the horse.

    So similar to lanes round here. Lovely.

    1. Heyjude says:

      One reason why I always drive slowly around these lanes.

      1. margaret21 says:

        Good on you. Van man, late to the next delivery, isn’t always so careful.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I am surprised there aren’t more accidents around these narrow roads what with horses, cyclists, tractors, tourists walking where there are no pavements and the all too familiar delivery vans!

    A lovely English scene, Jude.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    For a moment there I thought he was a Mountie! The plants are loving our dampish couple of days. What kind of floral or otherwise theme have you got coming up on Saturday? Forewarned is forearmed!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s a big horse! Am I supposed to forewarn people of the theme? I’m not at all sure. 🤔 Not floral anyway, unless you choose to be.

      1. restlessjo says:

        Sometimes there’s a clue, isn’t there? I was just fishing 😁💗

        1. Heyjude says:

          Fish could work.

    I don’t get to see horses often, especially with riders. You are so lucky 😀 😀

    Gorgeous view. I love the richness of the colours and the trees, oozing age.
