Sunday Walk

Good afternoon - well it is almost evening now. 

I have been making Christmas Cards today and got a bit carried away with the time. 

Wanted to show you one this evening but the light is terrible and so the photo 
is no good. Will show you tomorrow. 

So tonight I will show you a few photos which I took on our walk on Sunday. 

What a change in weather from Sunday to today. Fog, mist and rain today. 
And cold. 

It was a lovely walk around Arlington Court Woods - a National Trust place 
where Den works and I use to work. 

We went for around 2.5 miles and it felt good. It is something which we 
said on Sunday we must do more. Just go out for a walk. I have to say that we both
fell asleep in the chair in the evening. Completely missed a new programme good job 
I recorded it.

So here are the photos





You will see a photo of Exmoor ponies - they are used for conservation grazing
over the Estate. 

If you have a chance do look up on-line about more information in regards to Arlington Court

"Arlington Court was built for Colonel John Chichester in 1820-3 by the Barnstaple architect Thomas Lee. The Neo-classical exterior is dominated by a single-storey Greek Doric porch. This austere faรงade belies its warm and sumptuous interiors, several of which were decorated in the late 1830s by John Crace and bear evidence of the influence of Sir John Soane. This is especially apparent in the anteroom with its shallow dome, segmental arches and mirrored panels. The morning room, ante room and drawing room on the south front have sliding screens that, when closed, form one long tripartite gallery.The ceilings feature delicate neoclassical plasterwork and the morning room retains original wallpaper from the 1830s.
  National Trust Carriage Museum
  Arlington is also home to one of the country's foremost carriage museums housing a representative range of carriage types. The museum is housed in the original stable block built for Sir Bruce Chichester in 1864."


Thank you for popping in today and I look forward to 
hearing from you again very soon.
