I continue to enjoy my morning strolls out in the gardens as it is quite rewarding for not only photography but appreciating the sounds of wildlife. I’ve observed that weekends can get quite busy around the gardens so after my morning tour, I decided to head out for a stroll on one of the local foot paths which were recommended to me. One goes right along the edge of Great Dixter and ultimately will reach nearby Bodiam Castle (see further below). My new roommate, Thomas (Australian), and I headed out and I’m glad Thomas was with me (he knew the route) as the footpath route to me was not always evident and I did have some difficulty getting back (Thomas and I split up after lunch and I proceeded to the castle). Regardless, I made it back just fine although not by the same route I originally took!
