So, as I mentioned earlier, we had another weekend away in the caravan, bit of a mixed bag with the weather, but was still able to enjoy a couple of drives out in the lovely Kent countryside......living in a busy town it is so easy to forget that such beautiful scenery, and charming little villages are just a short drive away and when the sun started shining on Saturday we decided to visit a little spot that we found on our last weekend away. Hothfield is a little village just outside of Ashford and is home to the most wonderful Heathland Nature Reserve. Obviously there is an abundance of plant life, tree's, birds that sort of thing which are wonderful enough, but there are also ponies roaming wild and some cattle too including this absolute beauty that we met up with on our walk.


Having seen plenty of Highland cattle on our various trips to Scotland, but never this close up....so I feel incredibly privileged.

Anyway, its back to normal life and work today, so I will say cheerio for now!

Couldn't resist using this image, as a neighbour of ours used to have a Yorkie when I was a little girl, and my Dad used to refer to them as "Dish mop Dogs!!.....he always had a wonderful way of putting things!!! Once again it's blue's and pinks, and I cannot stop using this die at the moment.

Have a great day, and very much hope that you will join in with this challenge xx
