Today’s Pictures: 24 Jan 21

‘When real people fall down in life, they get right back up and keep on walking.’     Michael Patrick King

This project shares our world’s natural beauty with everyone confined indoors due to Covid-19.

The more people who share these posts on social media with their friends and followers, the more people we’ll reach. It’ll also show them our wonderful world. Maybe, between us, we can restore some love and respect for nature and slow down the damage we inflict every day on our environment. Thank you.

Enjoy my pictures? Have a look at my gallery, which you’ll find here. A small selection is also available via the ‘Gallery’ tab at the top of this page.

            1. True, but they were probably destroyed by an external intervention. If you look at the major ‘civilisations’ that have occupied different areas of the world over history, it’s amazing how many of them overused their local resources and died out. Today, the problem for nature is we intervene in ways the older cultures couldn’t. But the problem with and for humanity is that now our impact is global rather than local, and I’ve no doubt nature will find a way to deal with our excess, eventually.

  2. Congratulations on your fun anniversary trip. We spent our 59th anniversary cooking our dinner together and watching TV. Our daughter sent us some razor clams, lobster from Washington state. If and when this pandemic finally is beaten, we will go out to dinner, hopefully, several times, and take our Miranda (motorhome) our for a spin. The thought of just getting out of our house is more appealing than I can describe.

    1. I understand exactly where you’re coming from, Brenda. We’d love to travel further afield, and will do so once it’s considered safe for us, and for society, to do so.
      Our daughter was supposed to be married last year, she and her fiance were due to travel from their home in Australia to do the deed. That, of course, has been postponed and they’ve since moved from Darwin to Canberra, so who knows what the future will bring in that regard.
      But we do count ourselves remarkably fortunate to be surrounded by this wonderful forest and able to get out there every day, often without encountering another soul. Today, we did over 4 miles and met only 3 other people, so it’s a very safe environment. Roll on the end of the pandemic, eh?

    1. Thank you, Brenda.
      The gnarled branches of oak are on one of our favourite walks, which takes us through a wide area of oaks and back through a mix of broadleaves and firs.
      The mossy floor is in another favourite place we visit; we refer to this as our ‘magic’ forest, as it always has a slight air of mystery about it.
      The sea is off the coast of the Gower Peninsula in South Wales, where we spent a lovely week celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.
