#CountryKids A twilight walk home

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

It has been such a beautiful day today that I decided to spend as much of it as possible outside after the wet stuff we have been experiencing. This meant that I walked to work so the children had to walk back home with me! It's been a while since we managed to do that.

We had a quick tea at the supermarket first so that everyone was recharged and to reduce whinging! Then with a couple of bags of shopping we headed home:

It was just lovely to have time to walk home before it got dark and the lovely sun set and it really set off the Iron Bridge:

I wish I could have recorded the sound of the birds as they were preparing to roost. My daughter and I could have stood there for ages just listening but my son was in a hurry to get home:

We went passed our magic tree:

interesting tree roots

The best bit for me was our oak tree at sunset:

I do hope we get more chances to do this walk!


  1. Fabulous picture of the oak tree, the sunset looks fantastic behind it.

    I am getting to recognise the main features on your journey. The bridge for one and that pathway. It changes with the seasons and the time of day but always looks beautiful. I hope you have many more dry walking days too. Thank you for joining me for Country Kids.

  3. I love our walks to school and back. We love seeing the change of the seasons. Yesterday, we listened to the woodpecker tapping away. I'm intrigued by your magic tree. Looks like something sleeping at the bottom of it. #CountryKids
