The weather here has been beautiful and I'm making the most of it by trying to exercise outdoors as much as I can. I'm always on the look out for new places to walk and enjoy the scenery - nature's decor is unbeatable!
Today I went for a walk with my camera to show you our local village which is where my Dad grew up. It's very historic, settled way back as a military fortress first and then later developed by the Georgians as you can see in the architecture in the main street.
There is a very impressive and lovely tree lined avenue up to the parish church~And at either side of this there are identical cottages for the sexton~There is a main street which is on a hill and lined with some original buildings ~
At the top of the hill are some very important buildings. This one used to be the court house but is now the tourist information centre~
This is the only public view of the Castle which is the official residence of the Queen or members of the Royal family and dignitaries when they visit Northern Ireland~
To the right of this is a terrace of lovely red brick Georgian homes~Opposite the old court house is the walk to the fort through the arch and then I walk around the lake in the forest park - so peaceful on this autumn day~
It's back out of the park now and back up Park Street, one of the prettiest, with the quaintest of stone built cottages~
This is a newly built terrace of homes and I was glad to see they tried to keep to the original style of the street~
Well I hope you enjoyed this walk and you're not too much out of breath as that hill can be tough!!
Hope you get a chance to get outside and enjoy autumn too!
