Fabulous Things About England #32: Walking in the rain

Out the London Road























We are wet here in the West Country. After last weekend's unusually long deluges and wind, the constant patter of a slow soaking rain is almost reassuring.


The path stops at the river.























What better way to spend the early evening than meandering around the edges of the the countryside?


At least I think it's elderflower


















And stopping to smell the elderflower.

The leaves look like elderflower


















The farmers and the plants are still desperate for rain.


The Toll Bridge at Bathampton






















 Sometimes I walk out this way

The countryside boarders the river and the road.


















To be reminded how far the river travels.


How to capture rain drops?


















or to see if there are any ducks among the reeds,


The Bathhampton Inn


 And to watch the river falling.


There is no toll for walkers






















 Before turning toward the hill


Who lives here?


















And heading home.
