South Downs Way

Gosh!  It’s 10 days since I last posted.  I guess not a lot has been happening – I don’t seem to be inspired to take any photos lately.  I have so many now of my everyday life, that I can’t think of new things to photograph.  Hmm, time to revisit the ‘Picture Inspiration’ class on BPC!  I am working hard on a big quilt, and my Venice scrapbook album, so not a lot of craftiness to show you at the moment.

But…yesterday, the sun was shining so we decided to take one of our occasional forrays onto the South Downs Way.  It’s a path that takes you over 100 miles from Beachy Head in the East to Winchester in the West, and it follows the ridge of the South Downs.  Every so often we drive to the next car park and walk for a couple of hours or so.  Yesterday we parked at Cocking, and walked eastwards back towards where we last stopped.  We walked about 3 miles to the village of Graffham, then back again.

This part of the path is through woodland so not many sweeping views to show you.  But we came across these cute brown sheep.  Love that some of them have white faces!

That path you can see on the hill in the background is the next bit of our walk.  Westwards to Petersfield, we’ll soon be in Hampshire!

How glorious are these! And I love the sheep too... I can just feel the warmth of the early Spring on my face. Are you planning to walk the whole lot in stages?
