Today’s Picture: 24 Oct 20

This forest road was constructed to allow traffic from the quarry. It now forms a wide and easy route for walkers. Very occasionally, it still serves the quarry, too.

Drizzle when we set off on this morning’s walk in the forest, drizzle when we were returning home. But a dry spell in between. And our timing turned out to be spot on, as ten minutes after we arrived home, the sky opened, and torrential rain fell. It was very dull in terms of daylight the whole walk and it’s still raining now, four hours later. So, as these are pictures intended to spread a bit of joy, I give you a shot taken in the forest during better weather a couple of days ago, and another shot showing the beach on Lake Maggiore in Italy, taken in September 2018, for those who like a bit of water in the scenery. Enjoy!

If you’re visiting this blog, please be generous to those who can’t escape their own four walls at present, and share this post widely with them on social media, so they can enjoy it. It will also reach more people and hopefully remind them what a wonderful place this world is. Perhaps that might help restore some love and respect for nature and slow down our destructive urge to ruin the environment. Thank you.

    1. We spent a week by this lake, Adele, and a whole day on it. We thought we’d booked a ticket for a tour but it turned out to be the standard ferry and the outward journey ended up in Switzerland, so another country added to the list of those visited! I think our conversation with the lady in the ticket office lost something in translation.
      Because of the mountains surrounding it, the evening light in particular was something really special.

  2. Excellent timing! And a lovely blue lake. The one I live next to when I’m working in the north hasn’t frozen over yet, so we’re getting a ton of lake effect snow. I almost couldn’t find my truck yesterday!

    1. Wow, Lynette, that’s a lot of snow! I suspect they get some snow up at Lake Maggiore in Italy, as it’s up in the mountains. But, in September, it was wonderfully warm and sunny, I’m pleased to report.

        1. Extremes, Lynette. It’s what Greenpeace have been warning about since the 1980s, when I joined the organisation. You stay safe and keep as warm as is possible.
