Great & Green

MOMENTS captured on last weekends most un-planned excursion.  I got the feeling the Mr wasn't really too fussed what we did.  Just like some days i'm not either.  But days off together are precious and whilst lazy days are welcomed sometimes, last Sunday was not one of those days.  Last Sunday i woke up with an insatiable urge to be outdoors;  to feel the damp Autumn air fill up my lungs and to breathe it all in and SAVOUR it for a good few hours.

Do you ever feel that way?  After a week of busy-ness, and deadlines and general day to day and an overwhelming feeling of the '9-5's' - i just knew i NEEDED to be outside.  'I just want to go somewhere wide and open and green and…vast.' I told him.  And just like magic and the persevering and wonderful self that he is, he couldn't have taken us anywhere better.  
We walked up the sides of small hills, climbed the STEEPEST of steps and marvelled at the clearest iciest looking water RUSHING and GUSHING down between gullies and valleys alike.  We wandered back along the way we came, just as the low cloud was sneaking in and the Sunday sun was beginning it's descent into the day after.  And it was JUST what i needed, even more than you can ever imagine.  I shall never ever take for granted how lucky we are to have such magical and beautiful places to visit right upon out doorstep.

  1. Ahhhh so perfect, Sally. I feel this way so often these days - my weekends now entail a balancing act of rest/recuperation and satisfying a need for real, fresh air! As ever, your photos are so lovely and paint the perfect picture. Oh and they make me even more adamant that I HAVE to visit for tea (in a flask in a field). Hope you're well Sal xxxxxxxx

  2. You live in such a stunning area! These photos are beautiful :) And I totally know what you mean about sometimes just wanting to be out in the great green.

It was amazing to sleep in the coutryside herding the bleating of sheeps and sipping a cup of tea in the morning, watching the dawn!!! It would be a dream for me to come and live there!!!
