And now for something completely different.
Those who know me a bit more know I have this year become involved in Ghost walks and investigations. As a group we go out now and then to places to investigate paranormal occurrences to see if there are any there or not. It is fascinating in many ways. Then I became part of the official team and am helping plan a Halloween event! So before this happens I went around the site in daylight last week. I have been here before and had an amazing night. Even got some 'interesting' photos. But I hadn't been round during the day. So I invited/convinced my other half a lovely walk round would be a lovely opportunity to use his new camera and dragged him around an abandoned asylum graveyard. It's not scary at all and with the change of the season things wee looking beautiful. I took a LOT of photos but I thought I would share with you the ones that made me smile or stop and think.
Photo one, Gary showed me this on his camera and I was WTH is that? Looks like a mummified strange head to me. But after taking a photo I decided to put my foot in for scale....
......Turns out it is nothing more than a strange stone. I think I certainly have an interesting imagination.
Love snails, no idea why but their shells are always so pretty with their patterns.
Do you see what we see in the tree? At first glance I though it looked a bit like a small dragon head emerging out of the fork of the tree until I stood where Gary was and he told me what he saw......
Zombie reindeer missing an antler! And I thought my imagination was strange lol
Back to the beautiful bits, there is something amazing about fungus growing. I am always fascinated with the different types you find growing on walks.
And every now and then you come across a grave stone. Not as many as you think, you really have to look for some of them as they aren't all upright gravestones. Many markers have been removed or crumbled with time, or so overgrown they aren't obvious.
In fact I went looking for this one as I remembered it from my visit before. But looked in a completely different setting in daylight.
And conkers!!! So many memories triggered by conkers and conker injuries caused by them as children. Hours of fun and games.
This is all that is left of the chapel.
And one more photo before I stop
Such a beautiful place to visit and so many interesting things to discover.
Back to share something crafty soon.
