A life in the Great Outdoors

A field full of sunflowers on a bright morning? Or, rolling hills on a clear full moon night?

To be honest, either would give me the same amount of pleasure. Simply because I love nothing more than spending time outdoors.

Having spent a long time on ships, crossing oceans, I’m used to the idea of being out of sight of land, surrounded only by water and the sky.

Once you’ve experienced the feeling of being alone in the middle of nowhere, under a canopy of more stars than you ever thought there could be or smelt Sandalwood on the breeze at three a.m. from an island that is little more than a dark shape on the horizon, you will never be content to be constrained by four walls.

Which also explains why I walk a lot. Whether it’s around Brixham Harbour or along the Cliff path, up on Dartmoor or just along a country lane. In rain or shine, day or night, I have to get out of the house at least once every day.

Here are just a few of the places I visit on a regular basis. Click to enlarge them.

Until next time.

    Me too. I usually take 3 walks every day around the village or along country footpaths. I could never spend all day sitting at the computer.

    For my whole life I grow up by the ocean. When going to collage it was mountains and trees all around. Well nice it felt Claustrophobia to not have a large body of water near by.

      I understand that. I can’t bear to be too far away from water.

      I know exactly what you mean. Maybe its a sailor’s reluctance to be near anything too rocky?
