… on a autumn day

Attingham Park in Autumn

Today was the first time that I have had an opportunity to take my new car out for a leisurely drive. I decided to go to Attingham Park after lunch and perhaps indulge in an afternoon ‘naughty cake’ delight whilst I was there.

I took my small camera with me thinking that there would not be many photo opportunities. As I walked around the walled garden I regretted my decision but soon changed my mind when it started to rain as I walking along the ‘Mile Walk’. I was able to hold my umbrella in one hand and take photos in the other hand with my small camera, something I am not able to do with my larger camera.

Afternoon Treat in the Rain

After I had completed the walk I indulged in a naughty cake… I opted to dodge the raindrops and enjoy it underneath the large canvas sunshades outside in the courtyard before returning to my car to set off on my homeward journey.

Out & About in My New Car

Today I am sharing photos from the ‘Mile Walk’, there will be a separate post on the photos I took in the walled garden.

    Beautifully organic. I do miss deciduous trees here in Oz. Mind you, where I am, where my cave sits, there is quite a variety including two huge palms. The gardener has a sense of humour there I see.

    Very clean lines on the new car, Cherie. As unorganic as you can get.

      I went there again today for lunch with my mum. We couldn’t stop for a walk, mum needed to be back home. This was a shame because it was gloriously sunny today.

      I am enjoying my new car, it is very nice to drive :-)
