Bracing escape!

Much as we love to be in the festive home, full of our favourite people and decorations, there comes a time every Christmas when we need to ....
get into warm togs and boots...
and head across the fields for a bracing yomp!
Crisp snappy air and cold grey skies.
No walk would be complete without the 'halfway grump'!
Happily not much further to these lovely creatures who distract us whilst we stop for a restorative snack!
The Alpaca Farm is a great favourite with visitors and regulars alike. They are such adorable and inquisitive characters!
The thistles are already planning to take over in the hedgerows! Sadly we shall be downwind of this juicy specimen when it spills it's seeds into the air!
The view from there before the walk home....
to the December View from Here.
Hope you're all relaxing and recovering from a very merry Christmas. t.xx

What lovely piccies! The alpacas are adorable!

We had a lovely walk on Saturday at Hunstanton: we took our dog to the seaside for the first time and he absolutely loved it!

We are looking forward to going to the seaside again (when it is a bit warmer!!) x

Hi T!
Hope you all had a wonderfully festive and silly time!

A bracing walk in the chilly December air has to be better than hitting the sales on the high street, hasn't it? And with the added pleasure of meeting fluffy friends on the way - no comparison!

Love to you all for 2009!
