Joining Cee’s Which Way Challenge
Continuing our bluebell walk in West Dorset …
we decided not to walk up to Thorncombe Beacon, but could see others enjoying the view
a perfect day for a paraglide

We climbed the hill and over the stile
and as we turned inland, Westerly views towards Devon
(Click on the link for other good walking routes along the coast path.)
We took time to smell the blossom in the hedgerow, I think this is a wild plum
we must return in September to find out.
Through the gate, with a look over our shoulders at that glorious scene, saying farewell to the sea we continue
onward through more bluebell woods
to marvel at the way the light plays through the trees,
joining Cee’s Flower of the Day
Magic all around us
A time to stop and breathe and notice how all the senses are tingling with pure joy, blessings counted, smiles exchanged between friends and for at least the hundredth time we say how lucky we are to live here……
Last Sunday I met a couple of friends for a bluebell extravaganza of a walk!
The path took us through deep dark woods

and lighter glades where the light was stunningly, beautifully, softly, frothily romantic
We stopped at Down House Farm
and sat out in the garden
Oh what a joyful day, the sun shone, the air was sweet, the sky was blue, our batteries were well and truly recharged …..

with a ripple wing, and teasel tiara
and a not so cosy armchair
or throne ……… Tout Quarry is just one of Portland’s many hidden gems.
You can see the colours used in order in the next post.
