The New Forest

A walk in the New Forest is always filled with a yearning for the outdoors, sun shining and no wind brings out the want to experience some space, open skies and fresh air which blow away the winter blues and fill your body with life.

Today was one of those rare days and we took advantage of the mild weather and filled our lungs with good New Forest air, rich in oxygen and with the faint smell of pony poo, we walked along the old railway line from Burley to Holmsley station. Holmsley station has been converted to a tearoom and casual restaurant which did not disappoint us. Cream tea for me, and Robert had a very tasty looking Bacon and Brie toasted baton, definite for me, the next time the weather is good and the urge to walk takes us back.

We have had a spat of birthdays lately and I hope those getting older had a truly good day, filled with surprises and gifts to enjoy.

Susan, Michael, Daniel, Russell and Mika to mention just a few. Happy Birthday one and all.
