This isolation is difficult but fortunately we live in a beautiful part of the world, in a small village in Yorkshire. We can walk out of our front door and take a walk through the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Our exercise is a delight
It reconnects us to nature. And nature has come alive during this pandemic!
It was a magnificent Spring day in Yorkshire. The sky was deep azure blue. The sun shone. There was a little chill in the air.
I like rocks.
Today’s walk started in the village. We were heading out for a long walk down the back lane to Lowthorpe – about 8 miles.
We were soon out of the village and on a trail across the fields.
It took us down a little path the May blossom was beautiful and formed an arch over our heads so that we appeared to be walking through a tunnel of white blossom.
We crossed the railway and along the lane.
Then we were on the low road to Lowthorpe. There were no cars or walkers – just the odd cyclist.
I was taken with the patterns in the fields created by the drilling. The crops were just beginning to show.
The trees were still dressed in their winter skeletons – just about to burst forth.
Some trees were adorned in their bright green – looking fresh and new.
Past the brooks and old farm houses.
A tent for visitors to stay in while cycling the Yorkshire Way.
An idyllic allotment in the middle of nowhere – a place to escape to and soak up time.
Fields of bright yellow rape with an old farmhouse and tree that have seen much history pass before them – back to the days of horses and carts.
Off back down the track towards Nafferton.
There’s the church again in the distance!
