A Winter Walk

Last week when the weather was better, we took a walk with our friends up in the headland.  I was expecting it to be cold and blustery, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the temperature mild, especially for a winter day.

There’s little T walking behind, hoping to find more muddy puddles.

Her dad had to carry her so she could see beyond the bushes.

In case you’re wondering if Doc was with us, he definitely was!

We decided to go up to the coast-gaurd’s hut to see the horses grazing, was a bit worried about my ankle, but apart from hurting just a bit, I was fine.  Can you spot the horse in this photo?

My husband actually thought he saw a seal, I think he really did, but with my awful eye-sight I couldn’t see what he was pointing at.  Doc didn’t seem impressed either.

As for little T, she was content on sitting and just gazing at the sea.

On our way back, we spotted this horse, I’m wondering though if it was the same one we spotted earlier on?

Have you guys settled into the New Year yet?  I took our Christmas tree and decors down yesterday, the house looks a little bare, but I’m fine with that.  The weather is a bit unsettled, but here in Bos, there really isn’t much of a big difference whether there’s a storm or not.  The winds up here howl on a regular day, so a stormy day, is pretty much like a normal day for us.  Hope no one is affected by the floods though, stay safe everyone!

    • Thanks! It is lovely. Sometimes we take this view for granted and when we take walks up the coast-gaurd’s hut, we are reminded of how beautiful it is 🙂

  1. The views are stunning and I love the photograph of your little one gazing out into the world! 🙂

    • Thank you! And I was just relieved that she was just sitting there. My knees get wobbly when we’re standing close, (well-almost) close to the edge. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    Breathtaking view you got there.
    I’m still staring at my decorations right now LOL

    • Thanks! Hahaha. Well, the 12th day of Christmas is tomorrow, so you still have at least 24 hours before Christmas officially ends. Then again, you guys are ahead of us! Good luck 😉

    Beautiful pictures, I giggled when you said you thought you saw. The seal. I’m like that too haha. Popping over from country kids 🙂

    • It wasn’t me who saw the seal, it was the husband actually 🙂 Thanks for dropping by!

    What beautiful views. Lovely picture of your little one gazing out to the sea.

    • Thank you! That pose of her gazing out to sea only lasted a few seconds, after that she pulled her usual silly faces 🙂

  6. What a lovely walk! 🙂 I’ve already incorrectly dated several documents. Lol! Hopefully this won’t continue for the rest of the year.

    Happy New Year to you to! It’s great to get out when it’s been dry and blow the cobwebs away with a bracing walk by the sea – you are right it’s something we take for granted living so near to the coast. Glad to hear that you remain unaffected by the storms and thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    • Yes, and the sun actually came out today! Hope the farm wasn’t that affected by the storm. Happy New Year too 🙂

    I just love little T in her boots always looking for a puddle of any kind to splash in! That’s greatness! Looked cold for a walk, but what a great way to connect with nature and enjoy the beauty you have around you!

    • And every time we go out I have to actually warn her not to jump, just to “walk” n the puddles. But of course her trousers and socks always ends up really soaked and muddy.

  10. They are stunning views. We went for a muddy walk and now our town is pretty flooded. Happy New Year.

  11. Beautiful environment for walking. Great photos, making me want to take a trip to the coast.

    • Oh yes, come – especially before the summer crowd does! Thanks for dropping by.

    Oh wow what breathtaking views! Wonderful place for a walk no matter the weather. Gorgeous shot of little T gazing at the view.

    • Thanks! It’s a bit scary though to go up the headland when the wind is really strong.

  13. It looks beautiful and untamed, I am sure the children enjoyed the experience.xx
