A Country Kid’s Post: A Lovely Summer Walk

After constantly moaning about the weather last week, we thankfully had glorious weather over the weekend.  And last Sunday was one of those lovely days where the sun was out and it was nice and warm(ish), a perfect day for a walk through farmlands.

We are lucky our lovely neighbours own about 500 acres of land surrounding our house and has kindly told us that we ca roam it freely.  They even gave us a map!  And since it was a lovely day, we decided that it’s about time we did some exploring with the dogs.

We also decided that it was best to put the dogs in their leash, we knew there were cows, but weren’t sure if there were sheep too.  We were also dog-sitting our friends’ dog Wilbur, who also happens to be Doc’s best-friend.

And there’s little T leading the walk …

Little T decides to stop and admire the view.

As you can see, we don’t live far from the coast, although of course not as near as where we used to live.  But I love our house and I’m okay with seeing the sea in the horizon.  On a clear day, you can even spot it from our back garden too.

With the map in hand, we just walked on and on and on.

Passed the cows who looked at our little group suspiciously.  Couldn’t resist taking some photos of wild flowers by the path.

Now if only we had more days like these, summers in England would just be heavenly.  After awhile T announced that she was getting tired and the dogs seemed thirsty, so we decided to head back home.

And what better way to end a beautiful day out in the sun, by dining al fresco in our garden of course.

Yesterday though and today, all that is forgotten, as we are once again cloaked in grey and rain.

Did you have a lovely weekend too?

Do share.

    I am so jealous of where you love right now. It looks perfect for walks indeed. We have a nice big open park but it’s going a bit downhill lately and I miss the big walks like that. Your dogs look beautiful. It’s really cute that little T was the leader.

    Gorgeous photos – it looks like such a lovely place to live! We had a really quiet weekend; a visit to my parents, and then somebody discovered Pokemon on Netflix… 🙂

    How fabulous that your neighbours gave you a map. Very thoughtful. We’re surrounded by farmland too but no sea to head towards so I’m a tad envious of your walks. I’m sure Little T is going to know the area like the back of her hand before long.

    Beautiful photos! The UK is a wonderful place on a nice sunny day, just wish we had more of them. We had a lovely sunny weekend, but it all disappeared Monday afternoon! X

    • We woke up to what looked more like Autumn last Monday morning and it’s been wet ever since. But weather is supposed to be good again tomorrow 🙂

    Gorgeous photos! How lovely to have neighbours who are happy for you to roam their lands. When we lived in the country we had less walking areas than we do now we are in town!

    • Yes, they are such a lovely couple! In fact, at the moment, they are my favourite couple 🙂

    Country walks are the best with kids and a great way to tire them out (and me too!) you’re always guaranteed to see something interesting too and running around isn’t a problem, I don’t have to worry about cars, roads and traffic so I find them relaxing!

    • Our dog is a half springer and loves it! So does our friend’s dog who we were dog-sitting that weekend. Fields are indeed perfect for them 🙂

  9. Sounds like a great walk. I really love the photo of the thistle! Great way to tire the kids out and get some fresh air. xx

    • It’s lovely just to be able to go on a walk with the kids, isn’t it?

    Yes we had an amazing weekend. Out in the garden messing around. Your photos are stunning. Good to have so much space to roam freely.

    • I know what you mean… It came out today and supposed to come out tomorrow too 🙂

    This walk with its views, weather and perfect ending just sounds like bliss to me.

    • It was indeed bliss … Then it rained for another two days straight 😉 But weather has improved again.

    Wow what a stunning location to live and to be able to roam. We had a gorgeous weekend last week down on our holiday in Dorset, followed by a couple of very wet days! #countrykids

    • The first two days were also wet, by Wednesday the weather has improved. Looks like the good weather is here to stay… at least for now 😉

    It really is one day on and one day off this summer. today was meant to be amazing but the sun vanished leaving us with a muggy grey day again. Well done on making the most of a good day and exploring the local fields. It looks beautiful there and you are still nearer to the sea than us. Garden dining is always a treat, it makes me feel like I’m on holiday. I’m hoping we might manage a beach day tomorrow.

    Thank you for joining in with #CountryKids

    • Went camping for three days! Sun was glorious, came back home to Cornwall in the rain, but looks like the sun is out again 🙂

    Such a beautiful walk! I’m so jealous of your view of farmland by the sea. We live on a farm near mountains and I love seeing them in the distance. #CountryKids
