I believe you but no idea what it means until I saw your reply to Cloudancer.

I had to look this one up as well, its a holidaymaker x

Sorry only just seen this it's a tourist or holiday maker we get them in their droves here and stop in the middle of the roads to take pictures and some try and feed the livestock it's a bit crazy sometimes 😜

I wanna be a grumpy granny grockle who paddles in the sea,causes traffic jams looking in shop windows and stops to take in everything.That's my aim for this summer!

Sounds like a plan to me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

And when the ponies stand in the road and won’t budge, it is a crockle stop.

Appreciated lemon πŸ’™

Makes me wish I could still swim, so cool looking.

Unfortunately not allowed to swim but some people do sadly πŸ’™

I can see why its a special place for you BB. What a beautiful and tranquil place to reflect on your day. I think I would like to spend a few hours sitting there and absorbing the landscape. Thanks again.Xx

Love to have my picnics here with Stan πŸ–€

Now that has formed a picture in my mind. I can just see you sitting with your best friend enjoying a beautiful view. Time well spent I would say.Xxx

Really lovely, peaceful, I hope doesn’t get too busy! Thanks for showing us your favourite place. x

It does a bit in the summer months I avoid it then πŸ’œ

Lovely photo of a beautiful place. How did the pond get its name? Is it shaped like a hatchett or was it named after a person or a place, or even a legend?

From memory of history I think it was water used to run an old water mill and the mill belonged to a family called Hatchet hence the name the mill is no longer around πŸ’œ

Really pretty!

You should I'm surprised you don't know half the places I go to x

madonbrew profile image
madonbrew in reply to Blackbird9

I know them…mostly, but just haven’t visited that way for a while! We generally go more Bournemouth, Lyndhurst, Rufus Stone direction. I was at Buckers Hard last year 😊

Blackbird9 in reply to madonbrew

I walk to Bucklers regularly from home 🏑

It is lovely there and I can understand why it’s your favourite place. Although you do have so many beautiful places to chose from. Thank you once again for all your recommendations, they were just right. β€οΈπŸ’

Hi Mooka I got your message but can respond unfortunately due to having changed my email more than twice so I'm not being rude ...I'm glad you had a lovely time when you were here and Molly enjoyed it ... I live in Beaulieu enclosure which is not the village but on Montagues land so we are a very private in the woods ... I used to live in Hythe near the pier but moved some years back ...I hope you didn't get caught in the rains while you were here .. its gone up to 24 today so very hot again if time allows on your next visit feel free to ask for more recommendations.. I'm surprised you only saw one deer at Bolderwood they move around in large herds that way which are a sight to behold stay in touch πŸ₯°

Mooka in reply to Blackbird9

You have been so helpful I didn’t think you were being rude. We got caught in the storm coming back from the pub. Other than that the weather was perfect for travelling/Walking around. To be honest we have a lot of deer here in Norfolk and the herds of them caused problems during lockdown walking along A11. We had a lovely walk at Bolderwood. Thanks I’ll be back for more recommendations when we manage to go again. πŸ˜€

WOW!!

I bet. We have the problem here on the Moray Coast, but they are not called grockles up here! A few months to go before they all go home xxx😎
