yesterday I set out for a walk with no firm plan of my route. The day was a bit misty and damp but it was so pleasant to be out in the fresh air ( after I had passed the boys old primary school which was crowed with cars and the smell of exhaust gasses was awful) .
On a whim I headed for the wide open fields, passing beautiful Rose-hips glistening with raindrops. The views were hazy and I loved the quiet stillness, the muted world where any pop of colour really stands out. Little sheep and cattle the size of sheep (Dexter) made me smile.
Through the "secret doorway" and between the gardens I Unexpectedly found blossom ....with the most gorgeous scent. It was a real delight.
The views as I walked quietly towards a neighbouring village enchanted me and I (almost) forgot my increasingly soggy feet....my latest walking boots leak....how annoying.
On the way home Horses, Alpacas and sweet little Finches made me smile. I may not have human company but I certainly didn't feel lonely.
How LOVE to get out in the countryside....even on a grey day. It's the nicest way I know to keep fit and passing my 10,000 daily step target before 11am gives me a good feeling too :0)
