On 28 April 2013 Paul Connolly led a group of walkers on a walk from Great Missenden to Stoke Mandeville. Sheila Bravin provided a selection of photographs of the day's events complete with captions which I have put under each photograph. On this ramble she used two separate devices - an i phone and an i pad!!

Hills in the morning helped build up good appetites for lunch

Rolling fields and hills, well kept and promising of summer crops

Path alonside a,ploughed field, symbol of the farmer's hard work

A number of styles and kissing gates were encountered

Many trees still bear but grass wonderfully green and soft underfoot

Fallen leaves and holly - hard to tell it was Spring!!

Buut some Spring greenery spread around and over the path

Breathing the air and viewing the sights of the open countryside

Interesting 19th century church at Dunsmore

Always helpful to back up the Ordnance Survey

Leaving Missenden behind

Down the Ridgeway Path towards Wendover

The first flowers of Spring

The group gratefully descends on beautiful Wendover with promises of a wide selection of lunchtime treats

The afternoon walk to Great Missenden took the ramblers across fields with evidence that the cricket season had begun

Extraordinary evidence of nature's resilience

The trunk looks done for but the branches begin to bud

Time for the photographer to catch up with the group

Watching her step of course!!

Expert ease with stiles, even with an 80th birthday looming!!

No obstacle stands in the way of a good ramble

A LLama looking like a cuddly toy with such a cute face!!

The entire field full of Llamas

Some not really interested in the ramblers passing through at all

But the sheep decide to vacate to another field!!

Glorious Spring springs underfooot

Temptation - but no time to order, must press on!!

Two kites (birds of prey) spotted by Francis

It almost looks tumbledown but is well maintained

The group wait patiently for the observers of the kites in the sky

A wonderful country garden

Cowslip - a beautiful and delicate native English flower. Also known as Herb Peter and Key of Heaven as folklore tells that cowslips first grew from the ground where St Peter dropped his keys, 

Ancient and well maintained country house

And finally, the ramblers are greeted by a lively foal.
