I adore boulders. Some how they draw me into a meditative state. I love the feel of them too. Great pic:)

Seeing as it's so nice and warm there, I would want to find a nice flat boulder and have a sit for a few. Warm ..

I don't think I could resist climbing some of those boulders.
That sky is so incredibly blue!

Melanie Me too, love boulders that is, they dont have to be arranged nicely (ex: Stonehenge) either! LOL I think its thier old souls that we find attractive, perhaps?

BetteJo That would be a great way to get the warmth back into your snow-bound bones! Hope you wont have to drive anywhere till the latest storm is history :)

Barkfoot I would have loved to do just that - sadly - many of these beautys were behind fence lines...here in Oz we dont have the ability to ... is it called wandering? Sorry I dont know the term, where you are allowed to walk across the land....hmmmm, I wonder if it would work here? Hmmmm.....

Now that really looks like my field site in Portugal! Trees, dry pastures and big big boulders. Will post pictures soon :-D.

There's no 'free to roam' in England either but life is too short to miss out on stuff. Don't let anyone see you, do no damage and leave no trace, and where's the harm?...

Lavender said...

Barkfoot Ah ha, I mustve really misunderstood something then, I thought Brits could walk whereever they liked. Pity, its a nice idea! LOL
I agree with you about going ahead anyway, especially if one is respectful (thats a minority!) I was much braver a few years ago - when I could run faster than I can now LOL

Lavender said...

Areeiro When you get a chance, no worries Mate! Im amazed how similar Portugal seems to be to parts of here - fascinating!

In Scotland there is a 'right to roam' (and camp), but in England and Wales there are only footpaths and bridleways. Although we do have National parks, Forestry Commission land and mountains tops where you have free access by consent. Everything got a bit complicated in the 1800s when the 'Enclosure Acts' were formed.

Barkfoot Ah ha! That must be where I got my wires crossed, thank you for taking the time to get me cleared up!
