Left or Right

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.

Although going to and from my house means using the same lane (in either direction) it is a case of deciding on which hill to negotiate on the day. Living where I do means that no matter where I go there will be some kind of incline involved, unless I stay quite close! This week we’re going on the Brunnion loop.

At the bottom of this lane is a T-junction. I haven’t yet gone right here, but left takes me uphill back in the direction of home. As you can see it’s all very wet at the moment, but fortunately not too muddy yet. Lots of ferns and ivy grow in the Cornish hedges.

      And very very wet.

    Why haven’t you gone right? You’ve been there years! But I do love that corner, with its sheen of damp.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Nothing awfully interesting in that direction, but yes, I need to give it a go in the spring.

    That looks an inviting lane to explore. During lockdown I did every conceivable turn right, left uphill, downhill that I could find. I expect we’re both experts on our own patch now!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not sure why I haven’t been that way, this loop is one we use when the weather is bad as it is shorter and less muddy. I expect going right can wait now until the spring.

        Oh, I dunno. The country seems to be going Right. In a bad way!

  3. I like the ‘tunnel’ formed by the hedges … and yes, it looks a bit wet under foot πŸ˜‰. Today it’s 30Β°C here (and humid) – a bit too warm to venture outside (except if it’s along the ocean)!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Hot and humid are not great combinations for walking. Leaves me feeling like a wet lettuce. πŸ˜‚

    That looks a lot like some lanes around here at the moment, except we have no inclines to concern us.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Upside of living on the downs are the views, downside are the ups!

    I misread the name as Bunion loop, which would be a funny name for a walk. It does seem very loopy.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Think of a lasso – that’s what this walk is like.

    Wet it may be, but it makes for glorious greens!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Undeniably green around here.

  7. BeckyB says:

    ooh the way you have captured the light, so inviting – maybe I’ll visit in the spring and we can go right!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s really all about the light isn’t it?

      1. BeckyB says:

        It so is πŸ™‚

    Some time when you have the time, you should go right πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Beautiful photo πŸ˜€

    1. Heyjude says:

      I will. When it’s better weather ☺️

    1. Heyjude says:

      I feel obliged to take the right turn now.

      1. I think you’ll have to – by popular request!
