A Saturday stroll, close to home. One thing that we’ve struggled with in England is finding simple, naturally beautiful outdoor places to explore without having to drive at least an hour – the type of walk or hike we could begin spontaneously in the afternoon. And then we discovered Wicken Fen, a Natural Trust reserve (England’s oldest, as a matter of fact) and a mere 42 minutes from our house.
We spent a very muddy afternoon here exploring right up until the magical, fiery sunset. It was so nice to be outside in the crisp air, even if I did temporarily ruin my rain boots.
