Seeing things from a different perspective

A couple of weekends ago, we went for a walk in Salcey Forest.  The leaves were turning, the air was crisp and the sunlight made dappled patterns through the canopy of tree tops.

There is a Tree Top walk through the forest, which enables you to see the forest from above like a bird or a squirrel.  What a wonderful reminder to look at things from a different perspective.  At ground level, trees are solid and rooted but at the top, they bend and sway elegantly in the breeze.  I was left with the overriding thought that there’s nothing wrong with having your head in the clouds so long as your feet are firmly placed on the ground!

If you have the chance, visit Salcey as it’s a lovely place.  There are a number of different walks (including ones suitable for kids), cycle paths, bridleways, picnic faclities, on-site parking and a cafe.
