The day got off to a poor start – but we can consign that to the rubbish bin! Suffice to say I can be such a silly girl.
However, we had a really lovely walk around Talkin Tarn. Surprisingly I’d never been there in all the years I’ve lived here.
Its a bright, very breezy sun-shiny kind of day. The tarn is set in open pasture like fields or woodland and the walk is varied. The trees were in vivd green early leaf andthe tarn had little foamy waves in the strong breeze. Perfect for a walk around the tarn, a look around a boat house jewelry studio (bought two nice things, one for me and one for someone’s birthday!) an ice cream and then a tasty lunch at the Blacksmiths Arms at Talkin village. Even the drive there and back was lovely – the short but scenic route through the edges of the Eden Valley.
Hector scaring the ducks and a couple of scenes from the Tarn. The long exposure in the trees makes the swooping gulls look like white ghosts over the water. And, a few shots from my bike ride yesterday.
