Today’s Pictures: 20 Feb 21

Gated track in the forest.

‘But in every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.’     John Mu

With the daily shot from my local forest, I’m including a shot of the wider world, not always entirely ‘natural’, to provide a wider view of the world and its wonders.

The other side of the river is Wales.

Share on social media so we’ll reach more people stuck indoors due to Covid-19. Who knows, between us, we might also restore some love and respect for nature and slow down the damage we inflict on our world? Thank you.

The only other white cliffs in England.

Enjoy my pictures? You’ll find more in my professional gallery, here. A small selection is also available via the ‘Gallery’ tab at the top of this page.

    1. Visitors are always welcome to our shores, DJ, but who knows when and how the restrictions will be lifted? For the sake of the environment, and despite the desire to visit Australia to see my daughter, I’m hoping we never return to ‘normal’ on the travel front.

    1. Thanks, Lynette. I don’t know how you stand it. I’m tired of snow the day after it falls, and it rarely lasts long here. Our temps are now unseasonally warm, and there’s even a chance we may have some days without rain, which will reduce the muddiness of the paths at last!
      Keep warm and safe and stay well.

      1. Thanks, Stuart. This year I’m finding it more difficult to tolerate the cold as I haven’t been able to leave for a bit of respite (we have very strict travel rules). But, next year will be the last big winter year. 🙂

        1. With over 500k deaths across the border, travel restrictions seem a good idea. But it must be difficult to be stuck in such a cold climate for so long. Still, there are signs of change, and each day that passes brings you closer to that return home.

          1. We have boundary restrictions within the country (I wouldn’t dream of travelling to the US right now and actually the border with US is closed), so leaving NWT is not advised as there is a 14-day hotel quarantine upon return (and you have to pay for it). We’re supposed to have 75% vaccinated by the end of March (here in NWT) and I’m hoping that loosens things up a bit. You’re right, every day brings us closer to returning home.

            1. There’s a similar quaratine system in place here, at last, Lynette, for visitors from most overseas countries. Cost is £1750 per person.
              Good news on the vaccine front.
              An end is in sight now. With luck, we’ll back more or less to normal by mid June. But I’ll wait and see before I make any travel plans, and that’ll be within the UK for now.

    1. Thanks, Irene. The gated trail is at the top of a very steep climb beside tall firs. The church is at a tiny place called Welsh Bicknor; there’s a Youth Hostel there, too. And the gentle sea breaks on the shore of a place in East Yorkshire called Flamborough Head.
