Jumps And Skids

The good weather has been with us lately dewy mornings, hot days and warm evenings this urges me to get on my bike so.I cycled along past blackness through the woods to Hopetoun, I passed all the fancy new jumps for the Hopetoun horse trials this weekend. All made beautifully from either oak or larch, a long time ago I helped build horse jumps here too, when I worked there in woods as a forester.On the canal towpath on my way home I skidded to a halt when some little creatures ventured onto my path .When I took a closer look I found two little water voles the third had wandered back into the undergrowth .Normally to see an adult water vole would be rare so I was pleased to get close enough for a good pictures so it was worth the puncture I got from skidding:)
