In which I went for a walk

Nothing like going for a tromp around the countryside on a crisp November morning.

  1. Nice photos, I love that they're all quintessentially British. I love those cold, clear winter days.

    Lovely photos, where did you find alpacas?

  3. Beautiful photos :) I love the human sundial, and that Yeats quotes is one of my favourites :)

  4. There's an alpaca farm at Boze Down, just outside Whitchurch-on-Thames. There were hundreds of them!

  5. The human sundial was amazing. I was so impressed!

  6. What gorgeous photos.  Considering how close I am to Pangbourne, I can't believe we've never been.  It looks lovely.

  7. My friend has one of those "walks around Reading" booklets, which we are working our way through. This was a five mile circular walk starting in Pangbourne and going north. We did another one earlier in the year which started in Pangbourne and went west/south. They're pretty good, although the directions in the book can sometimes be a little vague!

  8. I love the wheels.  Wonderful photos.  And you look like your having nice weather too.

  9. It's been lovely recently. The temperatures are starting to drop now, it's getting a bit nippy. But still dry, which is good!

  10. I feel like I don't get out and photograph enough.....I have a lovely camera and Little Man to entertain me so it should be easy, right?

    Love the photos!

  11. Thank you for these wonderful pics.  Just lovely!
