A Ghostly Walk

 This morning (Friday) I was feeling desperate to get out of the house and get some fresh air. 

P was up a ladder doing painterly things and I had exhausted my limited enthusiasm for housework tasks.

I decided to go for a short walk along the lane as we are still in lockdown and not supposed to venture far from home.

Just as I reached the top of our drive the fog came down.  I decided to carry on regardless, wearing my hi-viz tabard with the "deaf" warning logo as protection.

The fog rolled lazily up and over the fields as I walked, sometimes obscuring the lane then rolling back to reveal the sun. The trees appeared then disappeared, like ghosts.  It was quite eerily beautiful.

  1. And you appear to have made it safely home without being harassed by the spirits hiding in that fog!

    1. Ah yes. The only spirits I encountered came with ice, tonic and a slice of lemon.

    2. Ah the best spirits lead to high spirits, don't they?

  2. And then a headless horseman appeared waving a sword and I walked right through him because he was a ghost. I told Lord Peregrine about him and he just snorted and told me to lay off the gin.

    I like the trees with their twisted branches in the second picture.

  3. The trees seemed to stand out more prominently against the backdrop of the fog.

  4. I think my greatest pleasure is being alone out in the woods, or just the countryside; hopefully with a dog by my side. Beautiful.

  6. What amazing photographs JayCee ..... that last one looks like a painting. I missed your last post ... sorry. Just to say that my sister and I don’t look alike, she having dark hair and me being fair but we have so many similar mannerisms. XXXX

    1. Oh yes! When my sister frowns I can see our mother in almost the same way mum looks back at me in the mirror xxx

  7. We've got an overgrown path like that here. We refer to it as the tunnel to the underworld.

  8. We love your photos. Fog is great for imaginative walks on land. It really messes with your head at sea tho.

  10. JayCee - your photos certainly get over the feeling of chilly days.
    I have a friend in IOM and I gave her your blog name so that she could look you up - I understand she found you.

  13. I have only walked once where the fog came rolling in at ground level across the fields. I, too, found it eerie and was in danger of getting lost as nothing looked familiar so I beat a sharp exit...
