The weather forecast was right, full sun all day today – yes this Brit is obsessed with the weather, it’s been a long, wet winter. A morning of housework gave me permission for an afternoon stroll, at Sidmouth. The town was busy but we found somewhere to park and a different entrance to the Byes.
Lots of blue sky and a tempting path.
Here’s Daisy, all excited and with a spring her tail.
There’s been some storm damage in recent years,
But plenty of new tree planting.
We’ll walk beside the river Sid for a while.
There are remains of a jetty.
Benches everywhere to watch the world go by.
Leaving the river, we’ll go up a gentle rise towards Golden Copse, in Margaret’s Meadow.
The sky became even bluer.
We were surrounded by birds, but most were too high in the trees. Never mind this robin gave us a lovely solo performance.
Back down to the river where lots of families were enjoying the day.
That’s the Byes, I’ve taken you and Jo walking there before, but in the winter, I hoped you liked spring. The dog friendly café on the sea front was full today as were the car parks, so we headed home. I’ll show you where we made a quick stop tomorrow.
Did you go out for a walk this weekend? I hope you had sunshine as well.
