Journey Of A Lifetime: Final

Journey Of A Lifetime: Final
I next would like to talk about chores and admin on the farm, at least the admin that I was able to see. If you really knew what you were doing, feeding and watering the animals could be done within 10-15 minutes give or take a few minutes. The couple times I fed the birds, I didn't fill the bucket myself, I left that up to Chris as I don't know wh...

Journey Of A Lifetime: Part 2

Journey Of A Lifetime: Part 2
I think at this point I would like to move onto what you're all interested in, that being the farm and my experience. If I'm honest it wasn't as surreal as I thought it might be, I was quite overwhelmed though. I think what was more surreal for me was stepping off the train in Chippenham and meeting Dave, with some trouble finding my way across the...

Journey Of A Lifetime: Part 1

Journey Of A Lifetime: Part 1
Wow, what a journey it's been! I am beyond words as to the beauty and history that this country holds in it. I have always been fascinated by England from the ancient history that it holds, to its lush green countryside. I am certainly no city girl and I'm certainly not a country girl but I am right there in the middle, which works well for me sinc...

A Year Without A Spring

  As we come out of what feels like a winter that never ended, even with the changing of the seasons, we begin to see hope. We are collectively coming out of hiding with a renewed sense of hope and joy as "normal" begins to unfold once again. The lives we once led have been changed for better or worse, but we have also learned to appreciate th...

The Changing of Seasons

The Changing of Seasons
If you look around you, you'll notice the change in the season and all the beauty it brings to the world. The leaves that change colors, the animals leaving for their yearly migration or the temperature getting cooler. I think my favorite season has to be autumn because of the colors, it's perfect for photography, especially if you time it right fo...

A History of the Caen Hill Locks, Part 2

A History of the Caen Hill Locks, Part 2
In 1926 after a loss of £18,041 the year before, the Great Western Railway sought to close the canal but they were instead charged with improving and maintaining the canal. The cargo trade continued to slow, but pleasure boats began using the canal. During the Second World War the Kennet and Avon Rivers became a second line of defense due to the po...

A Short History of the Caen Hill Locks

A Short History of the Caen Hill Locks
It wasn't long after I started writing these blogs that I had the idea to write up a short history of the Caen Hill Locks and possibly even the farm. It actually wasn't long after I found CCC and read the very brief history that Chris had written on the website that I became interested. I haven't found much use for my history training since graduat...

For The Love of Loons

For The Love of Loons
As I have mentioned in my previous posts, I live on a lake in Minnesota with my parents which gives us some great nature watching opportunities. In the 4 years we have lived here, it is difficult not to take up nature watching, especially birding as we are a stopover during the yearly migrations. In spring when the ice has melted just enough, the w...

Capturing Moments In Time

IMG_1023
A photograph can say a lot about who we are. It can also remind us of a cherished moment in time with a loved one. It can capture a moment of utter beauty in nature that we want to share with others. We can enjoy looking at photographs and taking the odd few on our phones, or we can decide to take the jump at buying a camera and doing both! As I've...
