Dunster Castle gardens - the low walk

Hi there :-)

After several hours of writing reports (Lovely Husband) and me hooking a  Christmas pressie... I'm impressed by my whizziness!... we decided we needed some fresh air.

We decided on Dunster Castle as the lower garden walk it's suitable for our wee invalid.
I took my tablet as I knew I was more likely to publish a post with photos taken on that rather than with my camera as that would take several hours longer and takes all the fun out blogging.

The first few were taken before I realised that it was switched to incandescent lighting...the colours are washed out...

Even using my tablet it has taken more than half an hour 



to upload the first 11 photos!




Nature Play area...






The River Avill  



I then switched over to daylight! It was about 3pm...




Looking towards Dunster water mill from beside 
Lover's Bridge (above) and Lover's Bridge below. It has a stone seat set into the wall half way across






The overshot working water mill...











You can find out more about this wonderful National Trust site by looking here

I'll show you around a bit more some other time as this was about as much as Bertie can handle at the moment.

And now for something completely different... here is my granddaughter wearing her 
Olaf hat I had just made her back at the beginning of October
:-)



The lovely pattern is by Olivia from her wonderful blog 
Hopeful Honey
You can find it here :-)

Thank you 

to all of you who have sent me lovely messages,
I have found them very helpful.
It's so good to be back...I've missed you all

Hello Lovelies,

Sorry for the age it's been since I last posted
This is just too
 let you know I am ok and I'll be back soon.

Thank you all so much for your messages, emails and card.
There's many different reasons why I've been absent so I think I'll start afresh :-)

Also because I find it very difficult to keep up with everyone's blogs I've decided to either leave a heart or a smile in your comments. Because of my ASD I find it takes me ages to formulate comments as I have to check and recheck that any thing I say is not misconstrued.

Bertie ruptured his cruciate ligament and had to have a knee replacement
He is doing ok but has taken to limping more again this last week.
I'll see if Lovely Husband notices an improvement when he returns home tonight otherwise we'll be back to the vets tomorrow.

I'll leave you with a photo of my poor boy after his op two months ago...

See you soon :-)
