It's been a bright and blustery day, so I decided to take a walk in the grounds of Cliveden.
Although the house and gardens are closed for the winter, the woodlands are still open.
On arrival at the gate, the attendant told me he'd been asked to warn people of the severe winds that were affecting the area, and to be careful.
As an afterthought, he added, rather worryingly, "If you hear a crack, run!" Yes, good advice, but which way??
I took my life in my own hands and walked on, carefully. Listening for the crack.
It was worth risking my life to see some very welcome winter sunshine.
I thoroughly enjoyed my sunny and blustery walk, and as you see I lived to tell the tale!
