In mid-summer my love and I took a walk in one of my favourite places-the woods with the waterfall.
It is a place filled with beauty and wonder, and the combination of mixed woodland, streams, the waterfall, rocky ledges and expanses of ferns, makes it the closest we are likely to get to Middle Earth around here.
It was very quiet on the day we went, and we didn't see anyone else in the woods. It really made it feel very special and still. An escape from the everyday.
I love this place, and I am enjoying returning again and again, watching the changing seasons and building a sense of familiarity.
