In the scheme of things this should've been a sad day as it is six years since I lost my wife Anne, but it was anything but. To keep myself busy I went down to the Social Club to continue painting the cellar door which I had started yesterday.
I phoned Tootlepedal during lunch to see if he was interested in a stroll later in the afternoon, we arranged to meet after he went for a cycle ride. I returned to the social club to do a bit tidying up by removing moss that had gathered on the path on the unseen side of the building, this had been annoying me for some time. Now the building is in the hands of the trustees its good to see basic improvements being made in the form of painting etc. On a personal note it would be nice to see more of the 400 plus paid members use the facility as their local as much as attending functions.
I met Tootlepedal as arranged and we drove down to the Green Door, parked and proceded on a short circular walk by Jenny Nobles Gill.
A pleasant start to our stroll.
Our intention was to seek out fungi, we weren't disappointed.
Nice to see the Autumn colours appear but I do lament the passing of summer
This fungi was in a rather disgusting state of rot.
These contrasting broom pods caught my eye.
Fair warning I suppose.
Is this some dancing tree spirit?
This is a lovely track to follow.
Sometimes mistakes work!
We returned to the car and I duly deposited Tootlepedal at Wauchope Cottage and headed home for tea. This was a lovely walk with the best of company.
