To continue my next-to-last post, let me take you along for the second walk I took that day (on the 6th of August).
You've seen my favourite grassy path several times already, and it really was about time I went there again - after all, I had not been here yet this year, and I have no idea if and when I'll return this year.
Last year when I came this way in June, I found construction work going on at the site of a venue for courses and seminars. This year, it looks very far advanced, as you can see. Click here for last year's pictures to compare.
My Grassy Path was as beautiful as ever, and thankfully, much drier than expected. We've had substantial rain in the wake of several thunderstorms recently, and the sun does not reach some of those woodland areas all that well, and so I had been preparing myself for some mud; there wasn't any.
It was just a very enjoyable walk altogether, along "my" path, into the woods and back up to the fields and across them, until I reached my parents' allotment again and it was almost time to go home.
Isn't late summer with its slow but marked transition into early autumn a wonderful time of year?
