This afternoon, once my charge had been picked up, I took Rye out for a walk, well I walked, he rode his bike. Decided to continue the exploration began last night and this time walked to St Martin's Catholic Church. Beautiful little church with a lovely cemetry - I was also craving a sense of space and nature;
We walked down that road and at the bottom there were some friendly ponies behind a very large fence. I nearly took a photo, but then noticed a sign stating it was MOD training ground - decided it was prudent not to lol. Rye was a little intimidated at first by the pony, which was probably about 12 hands; but as we walked away, he rode back to have another look :-) And then a little further on we met an older lady who commented on Rye's bike and he told her we'd seen the ponies, (although she thought he'd introduced himself as Tony lol). And then we came to the iron bridge again and coming back there's a slope. Well, Rye had a marvelous time freewheeling down;
I remember that my digital camera can record video, so I took this short clip too:
Then homeward bound, cheese sarnie; and he's now on the sofa beside me softly snoring :-)
Have to wake him up, otherwise I'll never get him to bed at a decent hour tonight.
