Yesterday my friend and I did a ten mile walk to the next Village. Coggeshall is a small village with big history. We had walked to Coggeshall three weeks ago! we were looking for the Abbey, but unfortunately we took the wrong turn and missed it altogether so we decided to have another go! CoggeshallContinue reading “10 miles”

The countryside is there for all of us to enjoy. My friend and I walk through our Village and into the countryside, that we are fortunate to have by our doorstep. This week the weather has improved with lovely weather, sunshine and blue skies. Unlike last week when we decided to have a long walkContinue reading “Open countryside”
Today decided to walk early. Left the house at 5.30am walking to sheepcote Lane… This time walked on the road, the footpaths were much to wet. The sun was trying to come out, and the sky’s looked awesome. I carried on walking to Bradwell Church! took a few photographs as I always do, of thisContinue reading “Full circle”
Well the rain did come once again…. the garden looks fresh just like someone went there overnight and polished it. Just love the smell after a good downfall. There is a freshness in the air, and the plants seem to stand tall, saluting a new day hopping for a little sunshine.
Walking the countryside keeps me sane. Living in a village I have the best of both worlds. Walking down my street, I can go straight ahead and find various footpaths to choose from. Have walked same footpaths many times before! But with each changing season, there is always something different. Like now! witnessing the treesContinue reading “Let’s walk.”

We cross the new road and follow the footpath that will lead us, unto the road that would take us to Coggeshall. WeContinue reading “Follow that path”

Met up with my friend at seven. We walked down my road to our local park. The cherry trees in glorious blossom litContinue reading “Back on track”
Home and away!
Been back in the UK for 6 weeks now! It has not been a very good start! Cold rain and more rain, if that was not enough I go and get sick! For nearly two weeks I was stuck at home! No walking and feeling really miserable with head aches and sore throat. Yesterday! myContinue reading “Home and away!”
First spring walk
The countryside is starting to bud the hawthorns in flower, brightening the hedges the bird song keeping pass with each step that we take. Soon we’ll have the paigles and primorese in flower and violets A little wet underfoot, but it’s wonderful to see the countryside coming alive after a very cold winter.
Arrived back 15 days now! And yesterday, my friend and I finally managed to get together for a walk. We take the footpath by Bowers Lake following the trail bypassing the white farm. Very muddy underfoot! but with lovely sunshine. Walking ahead, ending at tarecroft wood. Soon, we’ll have the blooming blue bells we wereContinue reading “First walk”
