347/366 Out for a walk

I wanted to go for a walk but it had been raining a fair bit during the day. It was too warm to wear a raincoat, so I took a brolly with me. I did to use it two or three times, but it was absolutely fine.

When I got to the end of Stokes Road I had a decision, I could either turn to the left and follow my normal route and go straight on and go somewhere else. I thought that it was the weekend so I should go somewhere different. In the past we have only ever walked past the old part of Annes Hill Cemetery. I’ve never been in any deeper than the front entrance. I didn’t know if we could even go any further deeper in to the cemetery than the initial driveway. As it happens, a route has been cleared along several pathways, so that it’s possible to almost walk the perimeter of the grounds.

It was interesting to walk around given that it is a cemetery, but it is an absolute haven for butterflies and insects. I stayed there long enough to do a Big Butterfly Count. There were lots of Marbled White which were easy to identify from a distance, and I think Meadow Brown, mostly though it was difficult to identify some from a distance. But, there were lots. Notwithstanding that it is a cemetery, and therefore a place of sadness and memory, there are things that make it come a live and an absolute delight to visit.

At just under four miles, it was a very pleasant walk.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
