When Kerri Came to Town


 Get ready for a load of photo spam! This post is just purely a dumping ground for some of the shots I took when my friend Kerri (of Life as Unusuals) came to visit and explore my town with me, as I wanted to share a range of photos from throughout the day which are pretty random.
There will be a separate post in coming weeks about our visit to The Barracks but, for now, I'll let you have a nosey through our nature and history walk.

It was so lovely to finally meet Kerri. Someone who I have become great friends with over the past year and before she even met me, had booked to come on holiday to Disneyland Paris with us this winter. I really don't cope well, like at all, in social situations, meeting people or whatever (which is why I turn down every invite to blogger events haha), but when I met Kerri at the station it was a little surreal how relaxed it was.
We had a walk through the coronation garden where the public hangings used to take place, through the remains of our castle and along the river toward my house. After a quick turn around, we fed the ducks before walking anti-clockwise around the town walls toward the Barracks. I was a little overly excited to meet 2 male Chaffinches as well as a female! It's been a long time since I've seen any, the last actually being in Kielder. 

Thank you Kerri for making the journey all the way up here! I look forward to seeing you again in 190 days ;)

    1. It's crazy how much we have in common and we'd have never known each other if we didn't blog, especially with living in different countries. My photos are really not all that! Definitely not lately with having to use an old lens :P

  2. Love that you guys got together and did exactly what each of you does so well separately (took brilliant pictures and had a good mooch about!) Awesome. It's lovely when you meet someone in the real world and they're exactly how you hoped they would be.

    1. For sure! I don't really socialize at all apart from with my dog so one-on-one is the way to go ;)
