AlphabetPhoto: Q is for quiet

quiet on dartmoor

First day back at school today. AJ starts her new school and the other two are in new classes. It is quiet at home. Very quiet.

I took this photo when we stopped for a moment on Dartmoor, during the holidays. One of my favourite places. I stopped to check the sat nav and before I knew it, all the children had spilt out of the car. Cameras in their hands and no time for shoes. It was quiet on the moors. The heather and gorse were in full bloom. There were highland cattle to our right and sheep resting on the side of the road.

I love the quiet and the open space. Truly wonderful to pass this on to my children.

Linking up with Charly’s #AlphabetPhoto linky over on PodCast. My patchwork from last week, is not yet at the stage to be called a quilt, so my Q is for quiet.

    We used to love going on holiday to Dartmoor when I was a child; happy memories. I love the peace and quiet of the countryside. x #alphabetphoto

    So peaceful. I want to have a bench there to read a book or two and drink some water with lemon and just enjoy the view and the cars and the sky and the endless green hills. #alphabetphoto

    What a beautiful, and peaceful, view. It’s quieter for us now, not quiet…! The wee girl makes enough noise to make up for the boys being in school! #Alphabetphoto

    I love this picture it breathes quiet to me. Dartmoor is a wild spot but it is very quiet, I love it there but have not been for years it is a long way for us now!

    I think that’s what a lot of us are lacking, quiet. We all need it to be sane an it’s hard to come by in this modern world.
    Your photo is just beautiful.

    It looks like a lovely peaceful place and gives you an idea of the size of the moors. Lovely photo
