A reflective Morning

I reblog this now, hoping that maybe some of my followers might become interested in reading about my reflective morning.

It is a beautiful morning today: There is a little bit of sun, and only a slight breathe. That means I could go for a wonderful slow, reflective walk in Lakelands Park. 🙂

Yesterday, I mentioned in my diary something about my independence. So, this is right, I do feel fiercely independent. And this is good so. 🙂

This morning, I talked in Lakelands Park to lovely 80-year-old Iris. As always, she had her 15-year-old beautiful little dog on the leash. Her husband died eight years ago. Peter died two years ago when he was 85. He did a lot of running through the park, when he was still well. Early in the morning, he often saw Iris in the park with her little dog! He often told me, how much he enjoyed seeing them! 🙂

    I did get an interesting picture from MICROSOFT today. Iy was about the Broads in England I had never heard of it before. I think the top link shows a bit about it and where it is. Apparently quite an interesting area to visit with a lot of drainage windmills!

    From WIKIPEDIA:

    The lakes, known as broads, were formed by the flooding of peat workings. The Broads, and some surrounding land, were constituted as a special area with a level of protection similar to a national park by the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Act 1988. The Broads Authority, a special statutory authority responsible for managing the area, became operational in 1989.[2]

    The area is 303 square kilometres (117 sq mi), most of which is in Norfolk, with over 200 kilometres (120 mi) of navigable waterways. There are seven rivers and 63 broads, mostly less than 4 metres (13 ft) deep.

  2. Norfolk is a very interesting county, very flat and with some wonderful wetlands and wildlife. The county town, Norwich, is also worth a visit. My father was stationed in Norfolk in the RAF (Royal Air Force) during WWII, as being so flat it was ideal for planes to take off and land, as well as being close to the continent.

    When I saw this picture with a drainage mill, I had no idea, that there is something like a drainage mill, and that it is in England. It looked to me very much like a picture from Holland! 🙂
