IMG-20150818-WA0010

I took this picture at the end of a very long day of walking – and it is completely untouched.  No filters, no improvements – just nature doing what it does best.

August is my month for self-indulgence.  The time that I take for myself to do one of the things that I have grown to love the most.
So far this month I have enjoyed time walking with lovely people in the Peak District, the Lake District, across the South Downs, on Brownsea Island, around the Devil’s Punch Bowl and down some of the LipChis way.

I have plans to walk some of Offa’s Dyke in a couple of weeks – and that leaves me with some empty space on my calendar next week!

So…   Where shall I go for my next walking adventure?

As August starts to get into full swing, I am still longing for the absent sunshine.

Memories of my short break to Porto a while ago fill my head as I crave the sun on my skin.

I took this picture on the way back to our hotel at sunset, after a full day spent walking, talking, enjoying sun, sea and sangria, exploring the world around us and our love for each other.

The tide was out as we took the long way back to our hotel.  The beautiful bridge that spans the river was ahead of us, the beach behind us and we strolled along the river.  We were looking forward to another walk through the beautiful Crystal Palace Gardens before nightfall finally came.

Looking at this picture I remember the moment so clearly.  I should take more pictures…

My son and I collect squirrels.

We don’t actually catch them and keep them.  We just collect our sightings of them.
Every day with a squirrel in it is a good day.

He rang me recently to tell me he’d had a 10 squirrel day!  Wow!

And then I went and had a 14 squirrel day… The most ever!  Loving this picture of a purple squirrel too…

I love this time of day at this time of year.

When the trees have shed their leaves and stand proud in all their naked glory.
When the winter sun gives forth the last of its colour to the sky.
When trees are silhouetted against a backdrop of graduated shades of sunset.
And when cool, still water honours the beauty with perfect reflection.

I wish I’d taken this picture!

happy weekend

With some very busy weekends behind me, and more ahead of me – today is an oasis of quiet and calm.

A life lived in contrasts makes for a very exciting journey.

Day 301 - Epilepsy Awareness Day

Today we share purple for a good cause.

Apart from raising awareness of Epilepsy in general, we should perhaps take a few minutes to raise our own understanding.
Some useful information here…
