Bore Place Ramble

Jeanne and I went for a wee ramble around Bore Place yesterday. Ostensibly, we were looking for pheasants. I must admit, it felt a little weird at first to be locating pheasants without a 12 gauge and a dog, but I was just along for the ride. We learned some interesting things on our trip:

  1. Jeanne can’t keep things in her front pockets
  2. Kentish cattle aren’t as tidy as Kansan cattle
  3. If you’ve seen one grazing field, you’ve seen them all
  4. An overgrown hedgerow is called a “shaw”
  5. Given a chance, the same scrub bush will prevent trees from growing as in the foothills of the Cascades.

I didn’t take a lot of photos, for me it was one of those days where I really wanted to focus on the experience rather than abstract myself from the sun and breeze and smells and sights through my camera.
