This afternoons walk...

Short on pleasant words I'm afraid so just pictures of 7 mile walk around Moel Famau this afternoon:













Well, when in Wales...


Mmmm another possible Bog Monster
Till next time (maybe with more words, well maybe), your friend,

John

Sometimes pictures are better than words! Looks like a beautiful scenic walk - makes me even more ready for spring!

Janet said...

Gosh ! its years since I have walked up Moel Famau-thank you for the reminder of how beautiful it is- will have to try and get there this summer.

If a picture's worth a thousand words, consider yourself ahead, and don't worry. The words will be there when you're ready, and we'll be here to listen when you speak. In the meantime, your photos are wonderfully beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Sometimes, it's just about "being", John.

You don't always need words when you get such nice pics of your walks.

Bob Mc said...

What are the old ruins?

Bill said...

Wonderful pictures John! The first one brought a smile to my face as right now it's in the teen's here.

Deer Passion,
Glad that you enjoyed them

Janet,
It is beautiful – in quite a stark way in places

Laurie,
Thank you me dear, may be a while before I have the heart to write with a spring in my words, till then I guess pictures may suffice

Mr. Smythe,

I am a little jealous of your hiking environment, with all the history that can be found in the "Old World." Hope you can find the words again someday, I'm sure you will. In the meantime, the pics will work!!

Beautiful! :)

Murphyfish said...

Casey,
Thanks my good friend

Jennyta,
Thank you

Nearly there Claire said...

Fantastic photos...gorgeous Willow getting some water action in I see.

Mel said...

Your pictures certainly let all of us know who have never been to your country side how beautiful it is there. "Every picture tells a story."

Could it possible be another Bog Monster? We will be waiting to see!

Badger Watching Man said...

And beautiful pictures they are too - thanks for sharing them. They bring back some great memories of walking the Offa's Dyke path, but I was only passing through then - I didn't get to know it as intimately as you do.

Keep up the good work - it's all appreciated.

All the best

Beautiful photos! (as usual)

In answer to your question you left on my blog, I am a lot of Welshness. My Dad's family are from Pontrhydyfen and my Mum's father is from North Wales (...so that probably explains my love of sheep and daffs. (also partial to pikelets, bara brith, leeks and rugby!!) My brother and I have good welsh names.
Cymru am byth and all that malarky! :-)

Hey John. Thanks for the tour. I went out on the website you put out there for Bob Mc and found it interesting that it blew down. Must get some nasty storms that will blow down a rock building.

Murphyfish said...

Hey Claire,
Thank you, ay she does seem to be attracted to the water, must be the way I raise um!

Hi Mel,
Yea sometimes I forget how lucky that I am to have this upon my doorstep, as for Willow? – water babe me thinks

BWM,
Thank you, I’ll do my best

Keith,
Hey it’s only half way around the world ;-)

Ah Megan,
See psychic I am, Cymru am byth me dear

Hi Mark,
Well either that or poor mortar, to be honest though it’s exposed up there and the wind can blow at scary levels in the winter.

Sall's Country Life said...

Thank you for the scenic walk, it is beautiful there! Old world charm, butterflies, and daffodils...a far cry from the snowy plains of South Dakota right now! Here the geese are keeping us entertained. Have a great day!

Murphyfish said...

Thank you Sall for dropping by, me thinks I've seen enough snow till next winter ;-)

Dmarie said...

Missy said...

Love these photos!!!
Love the blog!

Kim said...

Stumbled across your blog by 'blog tangling' via Froog's manor! Such beautiful pictures. Can understand your melancholy - the 'black dog' cares not as to whom he decides to bite on the a**e. Hope your surroundings and Mama Nature help in some small way to act as a salve to your troubles. Look forward to reading more soon.

Murphyfish said...

Dmarie,
Thank you me dear, glad that you enjoyed them and I hope that you call again.

Missy,
High praise indeed coming from your good self after reading your excellent blog

Kim,
Welcome aboard me dear, the good ship Murphyfish in not normally so morose so I hope you’ll stick around for normal service, when ever that’ll be. Love the black dog comment and your allowed to write ‘arse’ here as that’ll probably one of the milder words used once I’m back up to steam.
