Today’s Pictures: 19 Mar 21

Misty sunshine.

‘Sitting or walking, the body must be held erect. To sit or stand otherwise is a sign of laziness.’   
Mohandas Ghandiji

I’m continuing the daily shots from our walks in the local forest for the moment. Another photograph from my collection will provide a wider view of the world and some of its wonders.
If you share on social media, more people stuck indoors due to Covid-19 can enjoy our natural beauty. Between us, we might even restore some love and respect for nature and help slow the damage we inflict on our world. Thank you.

The river runs out to sea at Lynmouth.

Photographs on this site are my own, unless otherwise credited. More of my pictures can be seen here. And there’s a small sample of my work under the ‘Gallery’ tab at the top of this page.

    1. I suspect not, Noelle. I’ve walked a good length of the river; it’s small, shallow and full of rapids, so not even leisure craft use it. But there’s a small harbour that’s accessible from the sea, and that may have been used for trade, but the town is quite small and located on a steep hill with little in the way of good road access. My guess is the place grew as a fishing village initially and became a tourist place in Victorian times.

    1. All moss in this part fo the forest, Brenda. It softens the footfall so that you can wander through here without making a sound. Magical!
      The small River Lyn flows down a relatively steep valley before it reaches the sea here, and is tidal for a short stretch. Also, the area is known for its sudden and quite violent (though not common) thunderstorms, which can bring flash flooding, so the high walls will have been a real life-saver on a few occasions here.
