Hadrian’s Wall, in a wonderful part of Northumberland was our destination yesterday.
This is Birdoswald Roman fort, below are the granaries. Above shows the remains of the Roman Wall, which you can see snaking across the countryside. I find it incredible that something this old remains, you can still see the tool marks made by the masons hand on the stone.
Yesterday turned into one of those days of those days where plans go awry, instead of following a Roman road we decided to head off into the wood that you can see cloaking the river in the picture above.
The path was steep in places, as we ventured down we started to get a glimpse of the river Irthing below.
There was a hint of Autumn in the air, berries, and signs of leaves changing colour already. I gathered some from the path to ecoprint at home. I love the connection this gives me to a place and time, which makes me very emotional.
It was a wonderful day out with such diversity to experience, the forest bathing or shinrin yoku as the Japanese call it was so restorative, I came home feeling refreshed and ready for some ecoprinting
