Good things come to those who wait, we’ve been on high alert for snow all day yesterday, nothing happening. Rewarded this morning by lots and lots of snowfall. Fortified by a good breakfast, we set off towards Lee Valley and ended up doing 5 miles around Hackney Downs, Marsh and Wick then got a train back home. So brilliant to have this bleakness not too far from where we live:
Last time we walked on Hackney Marsh it was packed full of people playing football and daffodils were coming up. Today it was pretty empty, only a few dog walkers and families. I love how the line of trees at the other end of the marsh almost completely disappears into whiteness.
A most enjoyable walk! Quite glad we were out early-ish too and had all this whiteness practically to ourselves.
