postcards: day four


Thursday 29th Sep '11: Graveney Marshes -  So lovely it gave me a lump in my throat.  Stopped to pick some wild apples on the side of the road and found these sheep hiding from the sun. Very sheepy smell in their little corner.  Spent the day on the beach.  Never thought I'd be swimming in the sea at the end of September.  Mind you, never thought I'd be one to carry a camping chair to the beach to sit on.  And a flask of hot water for tea.  Life is full of surprises.

What a wonderful day you've had. Sheep, swimming and sipping tea ... wish I was there ;D

I agree with Annie - wonderful combination. I love those sheep.

The sheep on the left of the picture is smiling. Unless it's wind!

I love sea swimming, so am rather jealous. The chair and flask sound very sensible, which I imagine is what you have been trying to avoid!?
Many sheep round here and the wind often carries that certain aroma, one becomes immune.
