Outdoor Discoveries

It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.

Still distracted

14th June 2010

Last Saturday should have seen me go further afield but another matter meant that I stayed at home. However, I didn’t waste the wonderful weather that came to us entirely because I got out my bike and travelled along some of the local lanes; it’s not the first time that the handy machine afforded a quick escape for a few hours and I suspect that it mightn’t be the last either. Places like Prestbury, Wilmslow, Adlington, Pott Shrigley and Bollington were encountered on the way as I took in some new lanes too. Prestbury’s parish church invited another photo while newly weds were being photographed on their special day elsewhere in the churchyard; I didn’t disturb them and silently wished them all the best. Rhododendron bushes were in bloom and that’s why I went around by Pott Shrigley. Well, there’s certain view of Pott Shrigley that I have had in mind for a photo of the picturesque village so I hope to get there one morning before their time expires; my evening arrival had the sun in the wrong place while it was being engulfed by cloud so another trip is warranted. Well, having another excuse to get out in the open air never can be faulted.
