Bye-Bye to Beechy Buckinghamshire
Only one more walk, tomorrow morning, and then Mr J and I are finally moving to our new home in the glorious county of Cornwall.
Buckinghamshire is nestled in the Chiltern Hills, there are acres of ancient woodlands with a predominance of Beech trees. Our daily walks have been in the Penna, or Penn woods to the locals, this is owned by the woodland trust and they are doing an amazing job of restoring the ancient woodlands.
Here are a few of my favourite spots
A stunning tunnel of glorious autumnal colours a fabulous place to sit and daydream.
This is the ancient oak, or the hollowed oak as Mum used to call it, I call him Bear, can you see why?
In the spring there are bluebells all around the base, lots of butterflies in the summer, and now with autumn he is surrounded by wonderful golden leaves.
This is a recent addition to the woods, there are a few amazing sculptures and this one has a gadget in the back where you can wind it up and sit and listen to a poem, heavenly.
I have loved living in Bucks, and have many wonderful memories from my childhood, and from my working life. But now, after years of thinking about everyone else, it is time for me to follow my dreams and move to the one place in the world where I truly feel “at home”.
Every time I go to Cornwall, I have the most amazing feeling of peace and as if my soul has come home, with no more ties to Bucks it was the logical choice for my new home.
This is where Mr J and I will be walking most days, a short drive from our new home, with a very handy pub at the top of the lane.
