It's the greatest day of the week, folks! The day we can all celebrate the woolly wonderment that is the herdwick sheep; our kick ass, hard as nails mountain mates. Don't forget, you have to say "Herdy Thursday" as the Swedish chef from The Muppets, otherwise it doesn't work 😁
I do love these critters so damned much* and I think the Lakes would be a very sorry place without them.
This was a very scruffy looking gal down in Langdale. She obviously didn't get the memo about her photoshoot that day! That face is pretty special though - I almost feel guilty about tonight's lamb chops. Almost. 🙈
* I'm not a sheep shagger.
Happy #herdythursday everybody!

Sri Lanka tea plantations 🍵🇱🇰
We had no intention to come to this tea plantation, but somehow, while we were looking for a peak that we never found 😅, we ended up driving around it and what a beautiful discovery 😍
Sinop Erfelek Şelaleleri'nde sonbahar renkleri.🍂 Gezimizde 28 farklı şelaleden oluşan Erfelek Takım Şelaleleri'ne de uğradık. Suyun rengi ve sonbahar tonları birleşince çok güzel bir atmosfer oluşturmuştu. En çok hangi fotoğrafı beğendiniz? Hangisini kapağa koymalıydım sizce?☺️ Herkese iyi akşamlar.✌🏻

A cup full of magic, anyone?
It was so beautiful to catch all frozen drops this cold morning.
What’s in there? It’s hot Blackcurrant gin from @hernögin. 💖

Windy sunsets in Lofoten ✨ The craziest thing about being in Norway last November was watching the sun set at 2pm. It hugged the horizon for the few hours it was out during the day, giving off golden light.
I’m slowly realizing that grief comes in many forms. Whether it’s grieving the relationship with a parent that you grew up desperately wanting, for a relationship that was different but beautiful in its own way. Grieving somebody who means the world to you as Alzheimers takes over their mind, and family and friends who were taken far too soon. Relationships and friendships with those you’ve loved along with versions of yourself that have been shed and left behind as you’ve evolved. I had to grieve a sport that I based the majority of my identity in, and having to face who I was without it. Grief doesn’t always mean grieving a death, it’s grieving loss and loss can show itself in so many ways. It becomes part of us, integrating itself into our being as we become new versions of ourselves. I wish somebody would have told me that it’s okay to grieve. It’s okay to be sad. You don’t have to be happy all the time. Be gentle with yourself as you step into the next stage, life is messy and imperfect. There’s no direct path, there’s twists and turns, dead ends, more speed bumps than feel like necessary but it’s also filled with amazing views and people ✨
