I will have to break this post up into a few smaller posts (HAH) as this was my longest walking day and I took a few (HAH) photos along the way :)
A little hobbit house?
I had many encounters of the bovine kind today...but isn't she sweet?
So I did the best that I could.
And I did take a few minutes to explore the small 12th century church.
The monks were responsible for building this road through the forest and I thank them for laying in thousands of stones which made it easier for me to propel myself forward in my big clunky (but exceedingly comfortable) hiking boots.
My own personal greeter!
In order to get this picture (one of many) I had to lean over a stone wall which also had some barbed wire running along the top of it - the first barbed wire I had encountered. So, sister dear, you asked how I cut myself on barbed wire? - well, for a photo of course...and WHAT a PHOTO!! Well worth it in my opinion. It was also very new barbed wire so I didn't worry about infection or anything though I did use an alcohol wipe from my very handy dandy little first aid kit - this was the only time I used my kit except for when I got a blister while walking around in Norwich (NOT wearing my hiking boots ironically!)
I doctored myself up!
Ok British friends - what does the "No Tipping" sign refer to? In rural Ontario it would refer to "cow tipping"...but here? Is it referring to garbage?
I never tired of the view!
Which includes more horses, cows and sheep!!
