Sunday Picture Post: Whitlingham Country Park

On the outskirts of Norwich a lake was formed when aggregates were excavated for the building of the Norwich Southern Bypass. Adjacent to the lake are the tree-clothed flanks of former quarries. It is quite a delightful place whether you want to sail, run, walk or scramble up those hills.

30th September, a misty morning

30th Sept 2022

When dew-sparkled cobwebs line the paths

The mist is so dense, we can’t see the lake

But by the time we reach the river (beyond the lake) that mist is clearing

River Yare, part of the Norfolk Broads complex

We turn then to the wooded hills, to walk our way back

Looking down…

So glad of the steps. Here the soil is eroding and some of those steps are rather steep

And we’re back down to the lake…which we now can see!

It’s a beautiful walk, a beautiful day, and I return home with a camera full of photos…which is why I posted fungi yesterday, and tomorrow I’ll post flora, and Tuesday, for a treat, water birds

Hope you enjoy them all
