Anyhow I am not aboard at the moment but back in the South Downs. I still cannot believe such beauty and tranquility exists so close to some large populations. It is only this that makes me hanker for my log cabin in the woods of the Galloway forest - now that is a remote area.
I feel I need to share my walk today - after working in the cottage I took Leia out up onto the hills and into the East Dean forest. It was all mine.....the twilight was approaching and it was just magical. I walked much further than I planned.... I kept walking paths away from the cottage, being tempted into the charms of the forest, it felt like an enchanted forest, it was quite a spiritual experience.
Leia hunts squirrels and when she chases one up a tree she yaps to encourage them to come down.... they never do !
So here we are in the middle of the forest.... if you can stand the yapping... it stops but it also echo's so wonderfully I think.
Please go large screen and turn the sound up...well after Leia stops her yapping !
We came to a beautiful view of the setting sun.... I just stood watched and drank in the expansive views of my England. I imagined who else had stood in this spot over the years marvelling as I was at natures spectacle.
I'm sorry you were not there with me to share the joy.
