the magic of morning mist...

Once upon a very early autumn morning...
...there used to be a golf course...
...but the money ran out, the developers failed...
...the town council and the people spoke...
...and the place became a park...a haven for the birds...
...songs in the rushes...
...and for Griffin and I to silently play witness to the magic...

Stunning photos, Kerry. The best kind of morning. The best kind of weather. I feel like I was there with you.

I wish I WAS there with you! xxx

I live on the edge of a place like this, but with no way of getting in to it. It's the first thing my son plans to do if we manage to buy our house: a path into the marsh. :-)

What a beautiful place! It looks so peaceful. Wonderful t that it has become a haven for nature and an amenity for walkers rather than a playground for a few.
