Last walk up Staple Hill before Lockdown

On Monday the sun was shining and we were able to take the car to Staple Hill to walk round the circular path there.  There was hardly a soul about, we only passed one other couple the whole way round.DSC03833

We noticed the fir trees had new growth which was blueish in colour.DSC03834

We could see where some trees had been felled to give more light in the woods.DSC03836

We wandered off the path to the edge of a ravine which dropped away sharply.DSC03838

The view was a bit hazy but still lovely.DSC03842

Since the new regulations on Tuesday we are not allowed to drive anywhere to go for a walk, so we won’t be going to Staple Hill again in the near future, just staying at home, in the garden, or around the country lanes where we live.  Still we are very fortunate to have a garden and to live in the country.  It’s much harder for folks living in a tower block in London.

Stay safe everyone and let’s hope this pandemic passes quickly.
