A dry afternoon, too good to waste. We headed up high, where the mud is less and the views are good.
This is the top of Painswick Beacon. It was an old Iron Age hill fort over two thousand years ago. A Roman villa has been found not far from here as well. People have been climbing up to this point to look at the lie of the land since the beginning.
I think these are deadly nightshade berries. Nothing was eating them anyway.
As the sun started to set it dipped below the clouds, and beautiful winter light lit up the land. You may remember from previous trips here that this is the place that the little people like to practice for being in the SAS. The dips are perfect for setting ambushes.
Cotswold stone, lit by the setting sun. A handful of people actually get to live in places like this. I hope they know how lucky they are.
I'm happy with our non-Cotswold stone home though, happy to share it with these vibrant little people. Never for one minute forgetting how lucky I am.
As we drove home the sun set and the sky turned pink.
I hope you had some good weather today too, and that you managed a little outside time. It's what Sundays are for.
