The unexpected sight of pufferfiah at the Bonsall Festival
It was pretty late in the morning but clearly we were disturbing this pair.
Heading through the farmland towards Cross Green.
Lots of summer colour in the landscape.

How Now Brown Cow among the thistles
Stumbling down the hill towards the pretty hamlet of Oaker with some typically beautiful houses along the lanes, and of course well kept gardens.
More beautiful houses of Oaker
The recognisable red of the Royal Mail among the hedges.
Another animal awoken by our passing on this walk. This chap didn't look happy at all about being woken.
Passing through the hamlet of Snitterton around Snitterton Hall finding lovely extracts of the surroundings.
Never seen a sheep quick like this. White and black face, brown coat and white socks.
The open cave near to Snitterton is dramatic set deep in the woods.
A short rain shower hit as we crossed the open fields.
I really enjoyed the nature of these concealed paths on this route. The pathways felt isolated from each other, creating new sections to the walk.
Welsh morris dancers and their dragon at Bonsall Well Dressing
Luckily we encountered a beer festival at The Kings Head in Bonsall with a BBQ and the lot.

Taking a break from the morris party
The old garage in Bonsall has stood the test of time, with plenty of retro features.

At first I thought this was a stuffed toy in the window.
The Plants are taking over the notices in Upper Town
Just the usual bit of garden creeping en route.
Crossing the fields now towards Wensley.
Yet more of these mystical tree lined pathways.
Activity on the streets of Wensley as we neared the end point.
Entering a new landscape right at the end of the walk was a welcome suprise.
Looking all decayed in the woods. Could make for a pretty cool photo shoot location.
The return to the car park as the cricket match was on by the River Derwent. Almost a sell out crowd for this stand.
