Hi, as I mentioned in my T Stands for Tuesday post earlier today we went to Lyme Park last week.We do love the formal gardens but we really wanted to walk somewhere wilder! I was hoping to see lambs but they have been put behind fences for now and we only spotted one lamb while we were eating our picnic.
As we walked up the hill, thinking we might do a short circular route following the main pathways when I saw a seat a short walk away from the path under some trees. I had to use some of hubby's photos here.
It wasn't really positioned for a special vie but will be a shady spot in SummerWe met another couple, the only people we got close enough to speak to, and were able to exchange a few words about the area and the fact that no one else seemed to want to come this way. They told us that the way we were walking we were bound to come across the stags...and we did! Hubby used his zoom to get some good shots.He was a bit worried that they seemed to be looking at me - I had walked ahead.
But these seem to be looking directly at him!Hubby also spotted a Kestrel before it flew off over the hill
I have always loved making landscape art and frequently the teacher of a Wanderlust class was Nicole Warrington - I love seeing her work on Instagram here - she is known as Coastal Nicole.
Here is the watercolour page I made for Eileen's 'Inspired by' theme at Art Journal Journey.It is a memory of the sights we saw on our walk, combined into one scene.
