7 kilometres walked this morning (about 4 and a half miles) and we met just one other couple and saw 3 others at a distance. From Thursday of this week, the forest will be open only to local people, as England goes into a month-long lockdown. So our walks will remain local and we’ll meet even fewer people.
Today, we revisited the first path we ever walked here. That was on a day during the break we took to find a house to move to. At the time, we never realised, as we trod that path, that we would eventually move into a house only a mile and a half from that very track. It was lovely to revisit it and revive old memories. I hope the pictures bring you some joy.
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.
