A Walk Along A Country Lane In North Yorkshire
Last night whilst Sophie was playing tennis with our son, Jamie, I went for a walk along the River Ure with our daughter, Poppy. It was a beautiful evening with swallows and sand martins out in abundance and only a few others around. The river flowed sedately past while a father and son fished at one of the fishing piers. At Boroughbridge lock, a boat was passing through. But I had forgotten forgot my camera.
So this morning after a bike ride, I retraced some of the walk.
Why? Because it was amazing to realise within only a couple of miles of walking, we had passed almost all the main types of crops (barley, oats and wheat), as well as cows around and about. But we never really think about it, because it's all we've ever known. Then along the hedgerows, the elders were forming their berries and brambles were developing.
