One Minute Memories of Knutsford, England
Our friends back in The States missed this year's solar eclipse. Luckily, we were in north west England where we had about 85% totality.
Another shot of the same stream posted yesterday, but with less babbling. Over Peover was a lovely walk!
We took the dogs out for a walk in Over Peover and came across this babbling brook. I had to stop and capture the memory.
The fog was striking today, so I captured this memory from a different angle. You'll probably hear a bit more traffic noise, as the road is just off to the left of the screen.
The Heath is a spot we take the dogs to walk and chase tennis balls. It's a big open area with woods on one side and the other three sides are surrounded by roads.
While driving in Macclesfield we saw this field with sheep and couldn't resist stopping for a quick One Minute Memories video.
We're trying something new. We are giving short, quick videos of the sights and sounds we the things we are experiencing. This one is from Rostherne Mere, a pretty little lake nearby.
