Saturday Morning Bike Ride.







































September - one of my favourite months, always helped by the weather tending to be good (ie not too wet) which has indeed been the case this year. Today starts off a little damp and murky, but it's not actually raining. In contrast to last week, the mist is lying over high ground instead of low ground. There is no sun to be seen, but Autumn colours are all around. I was pleased to see swallows, I hope they're giving themselves enough time to get back to Africa safely for the winter. The last two photos were taken with a "colour pop" filter set on my camera. Before I could figure out how to reset it my camera batteries died, however, the journey home from this point is the same as the journey out last week (minus the reservoir detour) and it makes for a much less interesting journey in the opposite direction so I'm not too disappointed. A fair few hills were covered today and required some effort on my part. I'm quite unfit as I've pretty much missed two years of cycling being too busy during my PGDE and probationer year. I'm enjoying having more spare time as a supply teacher despite currently working full time (at a very nice school, which I would be happy to stay at if I could!). It's a local holiday weekend here and we've been visiting a few places already so I've lots more photos to share soon. Enjoy your weekend...

Gorgeous photos, especially the last one, and the swallows. I hope that baby is big enough for the journey, he still looks fluffy! So glad you're enjoying the school you're at. Hope you have a lovely Sunday. CJ xx

September was always my favorite month when living further north, now it is definitely October. The photos you shared were just beautiful.
Hugs,
