Five on Friday - Moments Captured


We've been walking back on the Fen again this week which has been a wonderful way to end each working/school day.  With GCSE's in full swing for Miss Teen it's been stressful so with each ending of the day just to walk along the quiet pathways, pass the time of day with friendly walkers and just listen to the wildlife surrounding us is sheer heaven.  The colourful crops sway in the breeze, not minding the winged birds and insects, enjoying their dance as the wind blows gently through the once neat rows where they now rebel against the uniformity of their prepared beds.

Wednesday night brought on a whole different conversation as we happily walked along one of our favourite pathways.  The air was still, geese flew low above our heads and then... we saw this...


It was an interesting conversation.  We were in the middle of the Fen next to water filled ditches and a copse of trees with a funnel cloud above us.  If the funnel touched the ground, things would be a lot different and a tad bit uncomfortable for us.  Mr Teen said he would go into the ditch but me and Miss Teen opted to try our luck in the copse of trees.  Thankfully within a few minutes the funnel slowed and the cloud separated scribbling  thin clouds in that part of the sky.  Phew!

Looking at the sparse trees around, the weather leaves its scars to make the normal look more interesting.


Sneeze makers surround us in abundance, but surprisingly the only sneezes come from our lovely Tia who is getting used to the night routine again of a longer walk in the light.


At the end of the walks we have our treat (to boost our energy of course!).  Chocolate and long quiet walks - a perfect end to the day!


 Sharing with the lovely Amy at Love Made My Home's Five on Friday.  Go along and see some lovely blogs sharing their five.

Have a great weekend lovely readers.

  5. Wonderful photos to go along with your five. How scary to see the funnel cloud...I am glad it went away before touching down. I think I'd enjoy your evening walks especially the end of them with that scrumptious cake waiting. :-) Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
    Hugs,

  20. A quiet walk after school on the Fens sounds perfect, but that the funnel cloud could have spoilt it. I hope the exams go well for Miss Teen.

  28. Yes to everything wonderful except that funnel cloud. Yikes! That would have been a bit scary. I'm with your boy ... go for the ditch. A grove of trees would not be safe at all.

  39. Wow I would have been a bit panicked to see a funnel so close by. I din't know they appeared in your country. There has already been a lot of tornado activity here in the U.S. but I am fortunate that basically don't have any where I live.
    The walk sounds wonderful. I like to sit out back and enjoy the sounds of nature in my garden area. That chocolate cake look like a wonderful way to end the day with!
