Yesterday I took some time out to go for a walk with my best friend Holly in the Gisburn Forest. She absolutely loves walks and is perfect company, always happy, easygoing and keen. We can ramble along together, no need for words, enjoying the sights and sounds of nature surrounding us with only the rhythm of our feet marking time.
We moved here only a few weeks ago, only a few miles from where we were before but the shape of the land is a world away. Up on the tops, the border with Yorkshire just a mile down the road, we are exposed and surrounded by an ever changing landscape.
I love the peace and quiet, it allows me space to think, to be mindful. The endless views give my thoughts paths to wander along. What could be better?
I'm looking forward to exploring the forest and the hills through the changing seasons with Holly by my side. And for those of you who haven't been introduced to Holly before, you may not be surprised to discover she's my beautiful Border Terrier :)
