One hour Autumn walk


My friend and I walked from Bere Regis car park, through woods,


up to and along Black Hill


past old quarriesdsc_0008


past sun-shiny gorse bushes with dense spiders’ nests


along the ridgedsc_0011 dsc_0016 dsc_0017

down into deep dark sunken lanes



and leafy paths thick with leaf mould underfoot and dappled light ahead


through the village of Shitterton.

(Joining in with Cee’s Which Way Challenge)

The footpath goes between those two cottages.


and into the Drax Arms for my birthday treat, a scrummy Sunday Roast – Thank you lovely walking friend! ❀ (my birthday is on Friday, 11th)

Rounding off the excursion with the obligatory visit to the church, which is huge and full of amazing wooden carvings and this rather sweet sign by a gravestone



A boy named Joy! How delightful.

Home to a glorious sunset …dsc_0002

….. time to light the fire.

Wishing you all a snug evening. ❀

  3. It was a pleasure to join you on that walk – thanks very much. I especially love those hollow-ways with the beech trees spreading their arms protectively over them. You could follow them forever!

    • It was really good to have you along! It certainly adds a new dimension to walks when to know my blogging friends are with me as I click the shutter. I always look forward to sharing the views.
      I know what you mean about following those lanes forever – sometimes I get the feeling I just want to keep on walking into the distance and beyond.

  4. What a wonderful way to spend the day! I envy you your footpaths and historic places (although we in Canada have a few of our own, but not nearly as old). I was especially drawn to your mention of sunken lanes. As it happens, I’m a member of a (closed) Facebook group called Sunken Lanes and Historic Curiosities. (Its founder is also a WordPress blogger.) Feel free to join us there if you wish; you’d be most welcome!

    • Thank you Deb. The colours this year are so rich and yes so good to have that added crispy texture – make me want to create a textile piece to celebrate the colours but for now photos will do.


  7. What a day! What a walk! It hit so many of the elements I’d be looking for, for the perfect day! Happy birthday!
