Today’s Pictures: 22 Mar 21

A shot of the wider forest taken from one of the many hilltops.

‘We are the Pilgrims, master: we shall go
Always a little further: it may be
beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea.’    
James Elroy Flecker

For now, I’m continuing daily shots from our walks in the local forest. Another photograph from my collection will give a wider view of the world and some of its wonders.
Sharing on social media means more people stuck indoors due to Covid-19 can enjoy the natural beauty of our world, so please do that if you’re able. Thank you. We might even restore a bit of love and respect for nature and help slow the damage we inflict on our world.

  1. I have always liked the forest pictures, but this one across the open landscape is peaceful too. I would also like to take one of those boats out. My expertise is with small boats, so would need some training for a sailboat.

    1. Showing the forest with its variety here, Brenda. It’s a hilly area, but it’s not too often you get to see the wider view, because of the trees!
      It would be lovely to sail from this place. My only experience of sailing was in a 27foot yacht owned by a couple of teachers I knew. Taking the tiller to catch the breeze was an exhilerating event.


  2. Stuart, the ground of the forest looks so soft to walk one and I love the blue of the sea at Lyme Regis. I’ve never been there but this tempts me, it looks beautiful! You’re right how virtual armchair travel has been a welcome respite this past year and I’ve a long list of places I want to visit! 😀

    1. The forest has many different tracks, Annika. Everything from tarmaced roads through gravel ways to narrow, winding, boar and deer tracks, which we often follow. There are also areas of the forest where moss carpets the floor, making it both soft and silent; those are quite magical.
      Lyme Regis is a popular resort, with a few less well-known spots just along the coast. Definitely worth a visit.

  3. An open boat on a lively sea, Noelle? What’s not to like?
    Lyme Regis was named after the River Lym that flows through it (a lovely little waterway). King Edward I awarded the town a royal charter in 1284, which is when ‘Regis’ was added to the name. I don’t know the reason for the royal charter, but it was almost certainly because the local lord of the manor did the king a favour!

    1. Thanks, Lynette. The forest view was taken from a track we’ve walked quite often. But this is the first time we’ve been able to see this view, as some overgrowth has been removed to open it up.
