Whe walk thriugh the newly cut path was terrible as it had been slashed and slashed again and left on the path - constant tripping hazard which is not a joke at this age.
I did scare away the birds and began to walk around. My plan was to follow the extreme right bank of any water to come out closest to where I came in. This shot is the best I have to show what the ground looked like much of the way. It was seaweed piled high, mud or, if I was lucky, some sandy beach. I ruined my sneakers getting stuck in mud a couple of times.
This series of shots were taken on the 23rd of November and are in memory of my friend Karen, a devoted walking partner who passed away a year ago in August. Her birthday was in November.
She was the body in quite a few of the shots here and it is with her that I first entered this particular landscape.
This location is in our community, halfway between our houses and when she had first started using it it had been a good trail. The day she and I walked it, it was very overgrown and difficult in quite a few spots.
I noticed a few weeks ago that it had been recut so decided to hike it and this time alone.
I have a long, long story so will tell it here in parts.
