Somebody said it was going to rain…again. It seemed like a good idea in yesterday’s sunshine to go and have a look at the water whilst the way was still clear. Good job I had the faithful wellies in the car boot.
Looking for one type of water involved circumnavigating another type. These are pictures of the footpath.
I almost gave up at this point. It was impossible to guess how deep the water might be. I was minded of a time some years ago when, taking an ill-advised walk at Stanpit Marsh, I returned home minus one piece of footwear. At least there were people around to snigger then. Yesterday, I was alone in the woods wondering how long it would take for someone to notice I was missing in action should I become stuck. Really, what was the point?
If I might be so bold…take nothing for granted. Go and have another look. It doesn’t matter how many times I see this, I never fail to be overwhelmed by what’s on our doorsteps in Upton.
Then rush back indoors before it starts raining again.
