Well it felt like that this morning ..... we awoke to brilliant sunshine so after dropping some more goodies off at Country Matters we went a little further along the road to Barton with the dogs for a walk around the hills. The little corner of the village where the circular walk starts is so picturesque with choc box cottages and the church.
The circular walk takes you up a bridle path with views over the Bedfordshire countryside looking towards Hexton and Silsoe
the view down the bridle path
when we reached the brow of the hill to our right was a very steep valley looking down towards the village and we were so excited to see a pair of kites gracefully gliding on the thermals .... they swooped up and down the valley
our walk continued on a downwards path now (thank goodness as I am totally out of condition) down towards Barton Springs at the very bottom where two pooches immediately dived into the water to cool off
All that fresh air and hearts pounding as we walked up the hill made us glad to be alive and it cost us nothing .... perfect xx
