Escaped the madness of the move! Going to miss these wind turbines. I know not everyone’s a fan but I think they are quite beautiful! I have really enjoyed taking photos of them, over the two and a half years here! But looking forward to exploring Cambridgeshire/ Lincolnshire and Norfolk........ lots of new and exciting places to photograph ☺️
We're a week away from the end of Feb but there are rumours that winter might have a bit of fight left in it yet. By rumours we mean the long range weather forecast! 😁
Happy hump day everyone.

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light" - Albus Dumbledore ⚡
This may seem like a slightly melodramatic quote to depict a moment where I just a little bit cold, quite a bit hungry and a big bit not my gnomeal self. But as we came around the corner and saw the light reflecting on the Chapel like this 🔝, happiness was indeed restored!
I wish I could truthfully say the mood boost was simply due to the beauty of the setting sun on this gorgeous architecture (it was a little), or because of the many more Harry Potter-related venues we still had to discover (it was a lot). But the main reason happiness was found was because Nick discovered a slightly smooshed muesli bar in his bag. And by joves does this girl love a snack. Especially when she's hangry. 👯
What's your way of finding happiness during the darker times of travel?!? .
A quick shot of Durdle Door in Dorset, captured by @nicolinaiacob, before I jet off to the USA. I will be gone 11 days and looking forward to sharing a few things from across the pond with you!
The first known settlement of Dorset was by Mesolithic hunters, who returned to Britain at a time when it was still attached to Europe by a land-bridge, around 12,500 BC. The population was very small, maybe only a few thousand across the whole of Britain, and concentrated along the coast: in Dorset, such places as the Isle of Purbeck, Weymouth, Chesil Beach and Hengistbury Head, and along the Stour valley. These populations used stone tools and fire to clear some of the native oak forest for herding prey.
Genetic experiments carried out on a Mesolithic skeleton from Cheddar Gorge (in the neighbouring county of Somerset) have shown that a significant part of the contemporary population of Dorset is descended from these original inhabitants of the British Isles.

It was such a dull, grey weekend we didn't get out as we wanted but we did go to the amazing Brimham Rock in Yorkshire. These are naturalky occurring wonderful shaped millstone grit outcrops, sculpted by erosion during the last ice age. I've left Buddy in a few of these for scale 😊🐶
