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.
You and I seem to be able to post photos of our home patches that are very similar. Aren’t we lucky?
I must admit it makes me reluctant to move.
Yes, but we found out over the summer just how dependent we are on a car. And I am the only driver!
Ah yes. I get that. We have for two years had an on-demand bus service which has helped enormously. But apparently it works out at £18 per passenger journey, so we’re not hopeful that it’ll continue.
We have buses during the summer only and it is a 20 min walk downhill and 30 min walk back up. OK now, but probably not in our eighties. And taxis are horribly expensive here.
Yes, and it would be unwise to leave moving till you’re 80 odd, I see that.
Seems like a great place to take your shoes off and wander through the leaves … but I presume it may be wet 😉. Great photos!
Not only wet, but muddy underfoot and horses come through on this trail so you do need to watch where you step!
I will be in some smal woods like those with Ollie later. At least it has finally stopped raining! (For now.)
Best wishes, Pete. x
Good luck with the rain! We are still having heavy showers every day, some intermittent sunshine, but not nearly enough!
It sure is beautiful Jude 🙂
It looks lovely BB but I find it’s quite a sterile wood. No bluebells in spring and I never hear any bird song, though I am sure there are owls in this area.
Oh dear that is not good at all 😦
It’s most odd
I so adore the tree you highlighted, its old and luscious 😀
Thanks Cee. That one did seem to be the biggest tree.
So green and pretty 😍
oh I do love a beech wood, this is so beautiful
Lovely! You are indeed lucky to be surrounded by such beauty, Jude!
