Oh my goodness me - yesterday afternoon the rain stopped!
In order to mark this momentous happening, I decided to explore a bit further afield. Looking at this photo of the Moor, you would think we'd had no rain for months, but if you try to walk on it, your foot would sink into deep, squelchy mud! It's like walking on a sponge.
There was more green to be seen in the distance.
I love these black lambs - and what a lovely view they have: that's Colliford Lake, a large reservoir, in the background.
Highland Cows - one of the very hardy cattle breeds that can withstand the cold, wet winters on Bodmin Moor, because of their long, shaggy coats. We also have Galloways and a few Welsh Blacks.
I must remember to go back in a few weeks time when they will have their calves - how cute will they be?
However, I think the zoom lens on my camera will be in action on that occasion; I don't intend getting too close to these very protective cattle when they have their young.
