I love, love this place. It's a beautiful place. A place, where you can let your thoughts roam, listen to the song of the birds, and escape the frenetic buzz of the city.
I've been coming here for years. As a child, I used to cycle its paths. As an adult, I've logged many a mile - training for marathons, walking, thinking, reflecting, photographing. I even came here alone on the morning of my wedding day.
And I will miss it so.
We've been grappling with the idea of a move for awhile now. We are out of space. The boys require better schools. I would love to set up a proper studio. So it looks like we are headed to suburbia. We're planning on putting the house up for sale next month and we'll see what happens. It's exciting and terrifying. It's going to be a big change.
Do you have a favourite place you always return to?
I'd love to hear about it!
