I admit, I'm a bit of an hermit, and tend not to venture too far from home. However, my chum Terry recently told me of a newly discovered dog-walking path, so we decided to give it a go.
The path was staggeringly beautiful, but as usual not another person in sight. We are so privileged, more often than not it's as if we have the world to ourselves.
There was something for everyone. Monty jumped in and out of every available stream or puddle. Lady M was deep in thought, trying to remember her recipe for Moussaka that she's preparing for tonight (I've got the day off). And me, well I kicked leaves, hummed a few Vera Lynn favourites, and took snaps.
This was a 'valley' walk, with high rocky escarpments on both sides. There were gorgeous shade-loving wild plants everywhere.
I'm just amazed that we found no caves (inhabited or not).
That looks like a beautiful walk. I love autumn walks through the woods. Was it close to 'home' or did you drive?ReplyDelete
How absolutely wonderful and so different from our area,although I imagine up in the national park we would find loveliness but somehow I do not think it would beat your walk today,glad Monty had fun and you two young pups too.lolReplyDelete
Great views on that trek. All the better for having it all to yourselves. Lucky things.ReplyDelete
Sue, we had to drive 7 kms. It was at Lavaur, but difficult to describe exactly where.ReplyDelete
That could be a Surrey lane, Cro - I'm thinking Moor Park (and that DOES have a cave).ReplyDelete
It's very much like parts of Surrey, but no Mother Ludham here, I'm afraid.ReplyDelete
I often feel privileged when I walk in a place where no one else is around. It's magical.ReplyDelete
Looks lovely Cro...I'm always excited to find somewhere new to explore.ReplyDelete
You'd have loved here, Jacqueline. Nooks and crannies everywhere; an explorers dream!ReplyDelete
My it is so pretty where you live. Thanks for sharing it all with us.ReplyDelete
Streams, fallen leaves, ferns, solitude, silence....sounds like a recipe for inner happiness.ReplyDelete
I love that photo of Lady M., it's like she's walking along taking care not to disturb a single fallen leaf...lovely.
Stunning and mystical photos of Lady M and your stunning surroundings, thank you for sharing, Mr. M.ReplyDelete
Denimflyz in the US
I love walking in a woodland with the crisp, colorful leaves beneath my feet.ReplyDelete
It looks like a lovely trail Cro. You, Lady M and Monte should venture out more often.
It's nice where there are places for hermits to go.ReplyDelete
yes that lane is a spit of one here....tooReplyDelete
nothing wrong in being a hermit cro... mind you , if you think about it you are not really... look at all the places you visit daily on the blog?
fuck I sound like mary poppins
Oh, it's a most lovely path!ReplyDelete
What a delightful way to spend a day, and you, dear sir, were kind enough to share the experience with us. Almost as good as being there, only we didn't stomp through the leaves to disturb your peace and quiet!ReplyDelete
Oh, Cro its just incredible. So peaceful and quiet looking! I'll transport myself there for a nice walk myself...I'm off.. LindaReplyDelete
Beautiful, best time for thoughts..in a walk.ReplyDelete
