30 Days of Beauty :: Nine

Our favourite family walk takes us from Dedham along the river Stour that serves as the Essex Suffolk border to a National Trust cafe in Flatford, famous for being in many of Constable's paintings (Flatford, that is, not the cafe!).
I love this landscape whatever the season.
I am sure it will appear in another of my 30 Days of Beauty as there is so much beauty in this mile and a half. It was bitterly cold but we still had fun running after Frank's Moomin frisbee and climbing into old gnarled trees. We stuck it out for as long as we could in the cold wind before heading back to the van.
Then we walked along to the weir and fed the ducks.

After that it was off to Stratford St. Mary farm shop and cafe for lattes, peppermint tea and cheese scones and a thoughtful boy waiting patiently for his scone and tea.
