Boxing Day Bimble

This has become a bit of a tradition for Eldest and i over the years, regardless of the weather we go for a bimble on Boxing day, one - so we can clear our heads, two - so we just get away from it all for a few hours, we always walk the same route as well so from year to year we get to compare the countryside against the previous Boxing Day Bimble, there was a huge difference to last year on this occasion, as, well basically, last year there was still snow on the ground and everything was frozen solid, this year however we basically walked the route in shirtsleeves as it was about 55F.

This bimble, as per so many of my bimbles presented us with all manner of natural wonders, from the hunting Kestrel, to the huge flock of Starlings, some wild edibles and as pictured a glorious sunset out over the English Channel as seen from the top of the South Downs, as I've mentioned many times, to truly understand the natural world, you have to see it at all times of the year and in all weathers and just sometimes, it gives you a really good excuse to get away from it all for a couple of hours.

  1. Even our little house-dog prefers life out-of-doors much of the year. I'm glad you two could get out!
