I cycle to work quite regularly. And though there are occasional days when the distance or the weather can make to journey quite daunting before breakfast, it is a scenic journey!
Throughout the year I get to watch sun rises and sun sets, listen to the birds and watch how the landscape changes with the seasons. I’ve also given nicknames to the horses I pass on my journey!
On this cool June morning, the sun might not have been out but the greens of trees were lush! The birds were singing beautifully – Skylarks, Swallows and Yellowhammers. It was a thoroughly pleasant way to make my journey to work. I did take a moment to pause and while taking a slug of water I watched a Treecreeper hopping about the branches of an old Oak tree. I even got to wave a greeting to my favourite equine friends (Sensible Pony and Foal).
On a day like today, I don’t miss driving on the M42!
