This afternoon we drove Flo to her parents’ flat at Southbourne where she is to spend a few days.
On our return we drove up Roger Penny Way from Cadnam roundabout and back home via North Gorley.
Brook Cottage, standing beside the Green Dragon pub on Roger Penny Way, is of a standard New Forest Design.
I forget the name of the thatched cottage across the road that has a team of what I think are horned sheep (maybe Wiltshire breed)
keeping the grass down.
Three of these nonchalantly test the drivers of vehicles coming round the bend.
Further along the road towards Godshill ponies and foals graze the verges. Opposite these a crow is reflected in a still pond.
I stepped out at Ashley Walk car park to remind myself of my having strode over these moors not so very long ago.
Donkeys at Godshill Cricket ground are busy shedding their winter coats, possibly because they have heard we are due a heat wave next week.
This evening we snacked on scrambled egg on toast. I’m still trying to get over Monday’s ultimate mixed grill.
