A wanderer through the woods

I have to admit, this isn't one of my photos I'm afraid, as I neglected to take a camera on my recent walk along part of Offa's Dyke. I actually didn't want to bring my camera. I just wanted to look, observe, and record without resorting to photos. But of course an image does convey things to other people perhaps more easily than words sometimes. Thus this photo of Tintern Abbey on the banks of the Wye. It was lovely just to be outside in the fresh air, especially as these days I spend so much of my time in London. But I think all that could be about to change. Yes, I feel the need to move on. I'm not sure where I'll go, but I hope a leap into the dark might be met with a firm landing somewhere. Or maybe I'll get a camper van and continue my travels. I would just like to be unburdened for a while of stuff. Walking with a rucksack on your back, you realise just how little you really need to get by. Travel light and maybe you leave room for other things to grow.

Offa was the first one to be recognised as king of the English/Angles/Britons etc back in the 700's apparently. I'd like to say that I know that from great learning but a calender had it on as a question at work today. Still strange how things come and go like that!

Wandering sounds good, there's always a cup of tea and a slice of cake in Leeds as you pass through!

So much different to when you were here although not convinced the onions took with the extreme cold snap we had. Just did all the first digging today and put a load in the greenhouse as well so hoping for big things! Hoping the frosts have passed so I can really get going.
