A Walk in the English Countryside

My husband and I love to take long country walks at the weekend, and today was no exception. We decided to walk a circuit through the fields and woodland near our house.

We were lucky to have a beautiful day with blue skies and sunny weather, even if the wind was rather cold. A bonus was that my son was at home this weekend so he came with us.

I thought it would be a lovely idea to take photos of the walk and post them to the blog. My idea didn't start well when I realized I'd forgotten my phone! Luckily my son had his so I used that. Unfortunately his phone ran out of power just as we approached the lovely historic manor house hotel I wanted to photograph!

Once we arrived home, I had fun transferring the photos across—a simple matter you might think. I managed eventually by texting the photos from my son's phone to my own. I'm very impressed with my lovely new Macbook that shows me the photos on my iPhone, cutting out the step where I would have had to upload the photos from my phone to my computer.

Anyway, this is our walk through the Devon countryside (or the first part of it before the phone ran out of battery) in photos.
