Spring in all its glory

In my last post, I was eagerly awaiting spring. It’s now here, in all its glory! For me, this has got to be one of the best times of the year – it signifies the true start of a new year, with the plants and flowers beginning to grow, trees blossoming and sprouting new leaves, animals being born and birds hatching in their nests, days getting longer and warmer, evenings getting lighter, a true sense of expectation for the summer to come. I love it!

While out camping this weekend, I recorded the magical dawn chorus. Click on the audio link below, turn up the volume on your listening device, and enjoy.

Just over a week ago, we had the best end of year ever when my son married  his beautiful  fiancée,  Sarah. So, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my family, my followers and fellow bloggers a happy, healthy and peaceful 2014. To all cycle tourers, may your travels be safe and the wind at your back. For those people less fortunate than ourselves, may your lives improve during the coming year. A Happy New Year to you all!
