Today the sun is shining and we went on a little adventure to the Kymin. We have seen it from the distance at the bottom of the hill from Monmouth and we knew where the turn off was but it is on a steep hill with narrow lanes and sharp bends. Not the sort of turn you can make without planning it.
The little road up was far longer, steeper and narrower than we expected with little passing spots and hairpin bends. There were glimpses of the view on the way up but nothing had prepared us for the vista ahead. As we left out car in the little car park there were only two other cars there. Then the view over England was revealed.
From all four sides
The last of the autumn colour through the trees and a little pond, itself getting full of fallen leaves.
So that was our little outing today. I had planned to do the ironing and then get back to drawing more feathers for the book..... but I had a nap on the sofa and watched the tennis. It couldn't have been too exciting as I woke just after it ended.....
