We had a lovely Sunday morning lie in and Steve made café lattes….magnificent!…….and the sun was shining!……….so, we just had to do a walk around this beautiful countryside we are surrounded by here in Dorset. When the sun shines in late Spring/entering Summer in this country, it’s just magic,warm and beautiful. So off we went, walking over National Trust landscapes…it was head clearing material!
So, the storms have cleared and we woke to a light frost and bright sunny skies. My cold is still lingering but I needed to get some fresh air today and be in a good frame of mind to start my working week. After some of Steve’s gorgeous coffee and some bacon and the best eggs in the world (from around the corner in our village……they are like gold dust, but that’s another story!), I wrapped up and took to the hills around Melbury Hill and Fontmell Down. Gorgeous, just wonderful walking conditions and SO many walkers out, dogs and children, couples, enjoying the respite from the big wet! it was great to see. If only the sun would shine in this land more often!!
Looking back towards Spread Eagle Hill and Shaftesbury
This year we have bought a 10 foot Christmas tree and it looks so amazing, standing tall in the barn at Compton Abbas in Dorset. It is adorned with glass snow flakes/stars and the fairy lights and tinsel give it a silvery glow….we love it!
My dear dad would be so very happy for me that I am now living in such a beautiful part of the world, Compton Abbas in Dorset. Dad, I feel your presence at the Air Field, every time I see a light plane take off. You would love this place, just as I do. Your body may have passed away, but your spirit will live forever. I love and miss you so very much.
