One day last week I woke up to blue, cloudless skies so I put aside everything I had been meaning to do and took off on my bike.
I had planned to ride along the river but I was drawn to the canal instead.
I'm so lucky that this is literally just at the end of my road.
Once I started I didn't know where to stop so I carried on for about 5 miles just drinking in the beauty of the Somerset countryside at it's best in Autumn.
|The first lock at Firepool|
|I love the lazy meander of the canal with it's still water and the bicycle propped against the fence|
|A couple of miles in and there is a row of canal boats tied up for the winter - it looks like someone is still using this one.|
|Some of the bridges are so low I have to duck to ride under them and the path narrows so one wobble and I'd be IN the canal!|
|On the other side of the bridge the countryside opens out into fields, it's SO beautiful!|
|And the same bridge on the way back|
|Someone has built the tiniest of summer houses at the bottom of their garden right on the edge of the canal. It's just big enough for a single chair - what a perfect place to sit and just be ...|
|SD and I had a bonfire at the farm - I could watch the flames for hours.|
|But I went for a wander along the pretty lanes and fields.|
|Where the sun and the light at this time of year are just stunning!|
|Yesterday a few of us planted some spring bulbs around the trees in the wildlife garden at the park - hopefully I will be able to show you some lovely flowers in a few months.|
|Finally - my gorgeous girl dressed up for Halloween on dress up day at work.|
Such a lot more to share but words are evading me at the moment in a way that photos never do.
Back soon :-)
