MarySmith’sPlace – Lockdown country walk

As wee change from Afghanistan, I thought I’d show some images from our lockdown walks. Our usual walks have become very congested so we’ve been seeking out quiet country lanes instead.

Path (Custom)

Impossible to keep six feet apart on this path

This path leads from the town to Threave Castle. There are places, usually at gates, where it opens out into the fields and people can pass each other, keeping a safe distance. However, while most walkers will wait at an opening for others to pass, some (most likely visitors come to hide out for lockdown) just barrel on down the path. Their sense of entitlement apparent.

I thought I’d share a few photos from recent walks. Apologies if you find photos of cows boring – I like cows. They are so wonderfully nosy and curious and friendly (as long as they don’t have calves with them)

  2. Love picture of cows, too. But yours are looking so intelligent, and this is looking so pieaceful. But in the first picture, Germans must have been at work. This is what you can find in Germany, that such a thing is only so precisely defined. LOl Thank you for the journey, Mary. Stay well and save. Michael

    • Thanks, Robbie. We’re really lucky to live beside beautiful countryside. Of all farm animals, cows are my favourite, especially at this time of year when they are happy to come to the gate to say hello.
