This morning was another bright and sunny one, without the wind chill factor. Consequently we took an early drive around the forest.
From South Sway Lane we enjoyed landscape views of Sway Tower. Note the field horses in these images are wearing rugs to protect them from the colder temperatures.
Flexford Lane offers sightings of the iconic tower not so available when the deciduous trees are in leaf.
Some sheep basked in the sunshine in their field off Lower Mead End Road. Others sheltered, chomping, behind a shed around which rays curled picking out their detail.
The varied caravan site further down that lane made good use of the early light.
The pile of logs at Boundway continues to grow fungus. I am not sure what the red marking signifies – something to do with inventory it seems. One child limped home from the pile missing a shoe.
The predecessors of this young man digging a ditch near Wootton would have envied his modern machinery.
This evening we dined on an extra spicy version of Jackie’s perfect pasta arrabbiata with tender green beans, followed by a well baked Belgian bun.
