We headed into the forest to have breakfast at the old Farmhouse in Burley. Peter, the owner, knows us well as old customers and always seems delighted to see us. He cooks my unusual orders to perfection and then heads out from the kitchen to come and chat with us to see how we are. I always feel welcome and special. We end our visit by passing the kitchen window, pulling childlike faces at each other as we leave laughing and waving goodbye. It is a fun experience.
From there we headed to the water at Mudeford. The light was amazing. I had my little camera with me today. Yay.
The yachts near the Needles were highlighted
and there were swans swimming in the sea at the harbour entrance. It was high tide and the water was right up against the wall.
They made me think of Eala Bhan. I have only knitted 4 rows but the yarn is fabulous, called Pebble Beach. I love it and it is flecked with all the beautiful colours of a pebbly beach that reflect different shades in various lights.
I managed a walk across the parking lot to the other side where the boats are moored. It was cold a fresh out but beautiful and very uplifting.
So, this is a little gift of all of you who have phoned, emailed, messaged and hugged me. I am doing okay, thank you all very much.
My leg is weak and at the moment it deteriorates when I walk any distance as I discovered with my short hike across the parking lot this morning. However, I am not in a lot of pain and it will recover with the suitable rest and recuperation. Patience and loving kindness will take care of this.
We saw old Harry on Coast last night. I am dreaming of walking that coast path in a couple on months time....
