We’ve been to World’s End quite a few times, but on this visit decided to take a loop we usually skip. It was a nice surprise.
The weather was unseasonably warm on Saturday, and extremely humid. Later it rained and washed all of the humidity away (whew!). But while it was so miserable, we wanted to be close to the water where there might be a breeze. And of course some flowers. World’s End is a former estate, so you see random things like crab apples and daffodils where someone planted them on purpose ages ago, and they’re still going strong.
Like these trees – planted in nice straight rows along a carriage road. Now everything has grown up around them, but they’re still standing neat and orderly among the chaos.
Here Yen has climbed down onto the beach and is picking up trash. He can’t help himself. I just wish it wasn’t necessary so often. How can people throw things out in such a beautiful spot?
And there’s the belly! I’m still going strong with the hikes, though. Slow, but I’m not letting a little extra baggage stop me.
You can see that we were there for absolute lowest tide.
As I mentioned above, random daffodils.
Here’s a little Hobbiton road.
I rested on a bench for a while, and five vultures flew over looking for something to eat. I wasn’t there that long.
Not pictured here is when we stopped to watch a little stoat hunting for tasty creatures. She was so busy and thorough!
Another bench for resting. I’m so grateful for them. Yen has promised that after I’m gone, he’ll create a memorial bench for me so other people can stop and rest.
