In these worrying times, I thought I’d share some photos from the walk I took last Sunday. My intention was to wander around the village churchyard and cemetery, and then go back home. I ended up doing that and then walking down the lane to see the lambs. Then I thought I’d walk to see my favourite tree (don’t ask!) and before I knew it my round trip had taken me over 3 miles.
It was great to be able to get out of the house (making sure to be as unsociable as possible, crossing the road away from others etc, it feels so rude!) and it was wonderful to be able to enjoy the sunshine as we haven’t seen much of that so far this year.
The church has been at the centre of the village for many centuries and I’m sure it will be there for many more. I always enjoy a walk around the graves… It might sound morbid, but it comes from being a family historian! Of course, the inside of the church is just as interesting.
Spring is now in full swing, with crocus, daffodils and blossom flowering, then there are the lambs.
It’s now lambing season here in Wales and it’s always a joy to see lambs in the fields. They’re actually quite noisy for little things. Some are leaping around, whilst many nap in the warm sunshine.
The route I’ve taken is a lovely walk, passing through a couple of hamlets near the village, and some hills to navigate. As a child/teenager, my friends and I could often be found cycling around here (sometimes with a pack of sandwiches and a drink). I don’t think I’ve got the energy these days to cycle up the hills though!
I’ve photographed this tree many times over the years and throughout the different seasons. I don’t know what it is about it… Maybe it’s the way it leans to one side.
More lambs and beautiful scenery. I think I’m very lucky to live where I do.
A view of the village through the trees. Not far from home now!
By the time I’d got back home, I’d clocked up nearly 4 miles (8,347 steps), according to my Garmin VivoMove HR watch. I was certainly ready for a nice cool drink and a sit-down!
