I've been waking up inordinately early. To take advantage of the early light I've been going for runs and walks. The most beautiful walk was earlier this month my first Autumn walk this year. I went to Dinas Powys, a pretty little town in the Vale of Glamorgan, and a short drive from Cardiff.
There's a lovely set of footpaths around Cwm George, a wooded valley that opens out onto farmland. The country lanes also have a few pretty cottages, and apple trees and blackberry bushes droop over the hedges. They weren't quite ripe, and I meant to go back with a bucket, but life events mean I never did and somebody else has probably picked them all by now and made a lovely blackberry pie.
Do you like Autumn walks? Do you prefer to walk in forests, across fields, up mountains, or by the sea?
