Walking in Circles

We had a public holiday on monday - so no work yay.  I love getting an extra day off at the weekend :))
So,  I decided to take a walk - all by myself. 
I don't usually like to walk myself - I must be a bit boring or something lol. 
But I decided I was going to do it - and of course I took my camera with me!!!
I had discovered a pathway I've never been down before so decided to walk along it. It is in a wooded area and I had no idea where I would end up. I was walking for ages and was wondering where I would finally come out. The strange thing was when I did finally emerge it was only about  about 50 yards from where I started. I must have been walking in a circle and didn't realise it.
That felt very strange!!!

It was quite a grey day and the rain was on and off but it wasn't too cold. 
The funny thing was when I was walking under the trees I could hear the rain but I wasn't getting wet at all (always a bonus). 
It is so pretty just now with all of the little spring flowers - lots of lovely colour.

I spotted this blossom tree surrounded by bluebells. Very pretty!!!

Bluebells galore - did you know there are white and lilac ones as well (would they be called whitebells and lilacbells?). I knew about the white ones but I had never seen a lilac one before.

Can you see the lilac flowers in this picture below? There are a few dotted about but there is one quite near the the front of the picture. 

I love this pathway - it's sort of magical looking.

This blossom lined street was rather lovely too.

So there you have it - my very pleasant walk. And you know what else I didn't find my own company boring at all, lol.

I don't always love walking by myself either, but if I have something to do, like listen to my ipod or taking pictures then it definitely is much more fun. Love all of the bluebells!
What a beautiful walk you had! Thanks for sharing.

I usually walk by myself (well, with two dogs in tow,) and I rather like it. Your photos are beautiful, Ellie -- especially the last one. :)

I rarely walk alone. Terrific shots, and that path looks like it leads into the enchanted forest.

So fun to explore on your own, to take your time, and take as many photos as you like without someone telling ya "ANOTHER PHOTO????" :)

The path does look interesting!
Sounds like you had a lovely walk. I walk for exercise so I like to walk by myself that way I can walk at the pace that I want to. Love your photos. The spring flowers are so pretty!

Hi Ellie, I'm catching up on bl0g-hopping after a more than busy week! I liked seeing your lilacbells! Isn't that a pinkbell in photo number five?! You certainly had a lovely walk and the trees acted as your umbrella! Perfect!
