A stroll in the Sunshine

Hello, Dear Readers,

One day last week we walked, on a bright and sunny morning, to search out a rare geological feature.

We passed these healthy, happy, free ranging little ladies.


These two were not too interested in me once they realised that I wasn't going to
feed them!
Spooky tree, I'm afraid the wee pixie just dived out of sight
 before I could take his picture!
Hovings Hole
An area known as Hovings Hole
(Unable to track down why though!)
Nore Hill
A little bit of  hazy April sunshine, adjacent to Hovings Hole.
Nore Hill Chalk Pinnacle
This sign describes what we were searching for.

When we first saw this pinnacle approximately 30 years ago it was much more impressive, taller and more defined, and not covered in grass/scrub.

We felt quite awe inspired to look down at this only remaining pinnacle where once, many, many years ago there would have been scores of them in the surrounding area.

Having achieved our objective we then retired to a nearby pub for refreshment and recouperation before walking wearily home.

"See" you soon!  Hope you are doing something nice this weekend.

Thank you Mary Anne. It was a super walk and we are already planning our next one!

Thank you for your comment Deanna. I always love to see the animals when we're out walking, but I'm not so keen on cattle! We tend to get chased by them.
