Flood Moors Lake

Hi all, the storms are Finally over here, but I know they only moved north a thought and prayer for people in Mitch's area who I know are still under threat of flood.

Mom and I ventured out for an hour yesterday as soon as the rain finally stopped. we headed up to the moors River and lake to see how things were.

When we arrived the river had just burst its banks and was flooding into the lake which in turn was over topping on to the flood plain. All the property in this area including the Rangers office is on higher ground so everyone was safe.

I took a few shots and we left as we could see the water rising as we walk and we had to back track as all the paths were under water, Its humbling to see the power of nature . here are a few shots from the day when the flood had just started. 

Have a wonderful day;)

Good Morning All

Just a quick note to let you know I am back to full health and to thank you all for the kind words while I was sick. I have to admit 5 weeks is the longest I have ever been unwell in my adult life and I do not recommend it LOL;) 

But now I have a huge back log of work to do around the house to get ready for winter particularly in the garden. So I am still not going to be around much for the next couple of weeks.

Here in Britain we have something called the "Heart Club" and they organize health walks for people who are recovering from heart problems or have been advised by their doctor to reduce weight and get more exercise  I have volunteered as a health walk leader and was on a course at the end of this past week and am waiting to be advised when I lead my first walk I am excited about this as I can be doing something I love doing and also giving something back at the same time.

They also do health cycle rides for people who have progressed through the health walks to a point where they need more vigorous exercise. I am joining one of the rides tomorrow morning to see if I would be interested in leading some rides as well, group riding is something I have never participated in so I am undecided if I want to get involved, but the ride tomorrow should help me decide,

I hope you are all well and I hope I can get back into catching up on your posts over the next couple of weeks. Have a great week and msy your God be with you;)

Happy Sunday

Hi all, Thanks for all the Kind words yesterday. it is a slow process getting over Bronchitis, I felt exhausted again yesterday evening after just a short trip to the store for groceries, I guess its gona take its time ;) 

 Its very frustrating when your an active outside person like me being restricted, but I guess I have to accept that's how its going to be for the next few weeks. 

 I will have to get out for some air now and then but I just have to accept I will feel worse for a while afterwards, but that's what I need to do. 

 I will get around you blogs as I can I have started to feel more like sitting at the computer for a while. Have a great Sunday, Baz;)
