A walk in the countryside

Autumn country walk

I could get used to this country lifestyle. No amount of mooching about in Hyde Park, or frolicking in the greener parts of South London can really replace the fresh air and sense of infinite freedom I get from donning my biggest, clumpiest Dr Marten boots and trudging through some mud, taking in huge lungfuls of cool, clean air. Hampstead Heath comes close, but even that doesn't quite hit the spot.

Late Autumn is my absolute favourite time for country walks, because there's nothing in the fields that would give me hay-fever, and it is the perfect temperature outside to bundle up in lots of knitted layers to keep warm before coming home rosy-cheeked and windswept to a toasty house and something hearty to eat.

And that's exactly what Dan and I did last weekend. We set off through the churchyard, and up the lane past the local farm equipment, before winding our way through some woods and along a little stream. We stopped by the side of the stream to sit with a flask of tea, watching the crows peck around the fields. And do you know what? I think we might go for another walk this weekend!

  1. Hello neighbor! (Okay that sounded creepy but!) Haha, I said that wiith the best intentions. :)) Anyhoo, it's just that I'm in Belgium right now and we're kind of... hmmm near?

    I'm Aileen by the way, I was blog-hopping and stumbled into your blog and the autumn post caught my eye since it's going to be my first time experiencing autumn (here in Belgium since I just arrived) and I. AM. LOVING. IT.

    Great photos!

    1. Aileen, you must be from pretty far away if you think that Belgium is near to England! But I guess in the scheme of the entire planet, we're pretty nearby! I'm so glad you like my blog - I think you sound like great fun and I'm off to check out your blog too now. :)

    1. It's a nice walk and you can take as long as you like, or stay on the path and keep it quick. I love red tights too... I might even have more red/maroon tights than black ones these days!

  5. Oh, it these photos are delightful! The bright colours and crispness that are lacking in Surburbia would almost restore my spirits if I wasn't in such an anxious mood! I like Autumnal Owl girl!

    1. It is SO much better I think - maybe because as far as the eye can see, it's all green! There doesn't seem to be an 'edge' to the countryside, if you see what I mean?

  17. Your pictures are beautiful! I know what you mean by getting used to the country lifestyle. I lived in Kuala Lumpur, the biggest city in Malaysia for 15 years and the last 5 or more years have been hard and I longed for a more quiet life.

  19. Ah it looks so lovely, I've always been a massive countryside person as I was half brought up in London, half brought up in the countryside. There's just something very calming about being surrounded by nature.
