Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesday

How are you?
Oooh we are living the good life….the weather has just cooled down a tad, it’s still very warm but there is the faintest sniff of Autumn in the air…
So here’s my Good Life Wednesday post…this is a headland walk that I have been taking about once a week…having driven past it many many times a week for years it’s only recently I discovered just how breathtaking the view is.
I love walking, I always have done and it doesn’t matter where you live, I think it’s good for the soul.
When I first lived with Mr BC, we rented a house in this grey little town on the outskirts of London, there wasn’t a whole lot going for this place, apart from the fact that, as most towns in England, it was dripping in history…beautiful old houses lurked if you looked beyond some of the hideous construction from the seventies and some of the old schools and hospital buildings were fabulous.
We used to walk out at night around the grotty little town, often wrapped up to the eyeballs because of the cold and peer in shop windows and gaze at old buildings and discover new things…like little alleys running through the middle that we’d never seen before, old war bunkers and a tiny river on it’s way down to the coast. Somtimes we’d stop into one of the many pubs for a drink. I miss those walks…now we walk in the evening around here…most people are in bed, people seem to tuck-up early here…we never see a soul and I am ususally in my pj’s and wellies (so I can walk in the gutters and grass without fear of reptiles)…and there are no pubs.
Anyway what I am trying to say is that walking is part of my stop and smell the roses things…whether you have the most beautiful blue ocean to get drunk on or you live in a grotty old town…walking around opens your eyes…well it has done mine…take a camera in your pocket and you may be a while.
That’s it from me, if you are here to join the linky party thanks for coming! If you wanna play, it’s too easy, there are no rules, life’s too short for linky party police huh…you just have to add what you’ve blogged…and be really nice and add a link back to my site, oh and of course, visit a couple of other people ;-)
