One foggy morning…

Foggy forest walk

This weekend I took Kit and Oz Trick or Treating. Nothing unusual in that you might think, but actually it is, it was my first time. We spent Halloween at home baking bread and fairy cakes to decorate with scary sweets and green icing. Two pumpkins were carved and zero fingers lost. It was good day.

 

This morning I was woken by the sound of playful cries and footsteps running, thumping away downstairs.  Then I heard the sound of a ships fog horn. One of the joys of living by the Solent is that you can tell if it’s foggy without even pulling open your curtains. I’m not going to lie, I sprang out of bed in a most unusual fashion. 

 

Walking down the stairs I was met by Kitty.

‘It’s foggy!’ I said

‘I know! Perfect for a walk! Let’s have breakfast and go!’ she cried.

 

And so we did. We headed to Dibden Inclosure and it was wonderful, the fog lingering until 11am. The burnt gorse looking extra-creepy with the addition of fog. Very Hound of the Baskervilles. We counted even more fungi, counting on from the 812 fungi we found on our walk in the same area earlier in the week. our grand total? 1, 412. And yes, I had to verify every.single.one. I will be dreaming of them tonight, not a shadow of a doubt about that.

Kit and Oz tried their hand at learning the Monkee’s walk, much to all our amusement!

I hope you too had a good weekend

  1. Very American Werewolf in London I thought.I’d be looking over my shoulder all the time if I was out there.I wanted to go out for a walk this morning but I’m snowed under with post holiday washing and packing for middly’s PGL trip next week.I haven’t taken fog photos near our woods, always go down the river for extra spookiness.It’s meant to be like it again tomorrow so I’ll attempt a trip after the school run.

  2. Kitty’s enthusiasm made me smile 🙂 And so did the fact that we both had the same idea when I saw your comment on Instagram on Sunday. Those horses in the fog are so lovely.

  3. Ah only you could make fog look lovely 🙂 I think the additions of those colourful jumpers and lovely smiles helps though. I love that your kids are actually the ones to suggest going walking – I have to bribe mine!

  4. Annie, these photos are incredible. Do you know, I’ve read so many blog posts over the years and it was one of your previous foggy ones that has stayed with me … the one with the cows. Those photos blew me away and I know that one day, I’ll be asking you for a copy when I find the perfect place to hang one in my home x
