Walk Three Hundred and Twenty-Seven – Sheep

I haven’t walked this way before because it’s a bit of a boring route past the Jersey Farm housing estate, however as this is the nearest place to show Xavier the spring lambs I thought I would go this way today. There was fierce icy wind, a brief shower of hail and a wonderful display of clouds, from bright white cumulus to huge towering slate grey clouds with visible streaks of precipitation. We are so lucky with our skies in this country. You can live in the middle of a huge city, but you can still enjoy the beauty and variety of nature by simply looking up. The wind, cold and Xavier were not conducive to creating pictures so just a few little scribbles in my large moleskine. Xavier entertained me pointing out the similarities of Robin to Homer Simpson.

These walks must have been a lovely experience for Xavier too - I remember it being so easy to think it's easier not to bother packing up small children to go out, but in fact a walk is usually a pretty satisfying activity - so long a sone is not trying to ACHIEVE anything. The clouds was all that could be seen from our school windows in Scotland - I knew all their names.

Lovely sheep, especially like the one in the middle far side facing you.
