Late this morning I amused myself by poking my camera through the guest bedroom windows.

This afternoon Jackie and I shopped at Streets in Brockenhurst for a bag of coal, a spark guard, firelighters, gardening gloves, and a wheelbarrow. We continued on a drive into the forest.

 

On the moors along Rhinefield Road we spotted a mare suckling a foal. By the time I left the car and waited for a couple of cyclists to walk up the hill, the late lunch had been completed. The mother wandered off on her own, joining a few relatives. Her offspring gave chase. He then lay down for a rest. Off she went again. Up he rose and continued his pursuit.

 

When the ponies vacated this spot a longhorn cow advanced into it. She was joined by a black companion. These two drew closer together as the next member of the herd approached to commandeer its own pasturage.

Dappled sunlight slipped through the trees along Rhinefield Ornamental Drive reflected in streams running under the road.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s splendid pasta arrabbiata with which she drank Hoegaarden and Elizabeth and I consumed more of the Pinot Noir.

  1. Your guests certainly have splendid views, Derrick! And the sights in your area of the world are quite lovely. Again, I couldn’t pick a favorite photo.
    Your dinner sounds delicious. πŸ™‚

  2. You live in paradise!!! Thanks Derrick for sharing this paradise with us!!!!

    ….I fell like I am lifting up like I can fly,
    Nothing can bring me down from this heaven I have found,
    Because, from the world, it has kept me safe and sound……
