Just back from a break in Shropshire.
If you’ve never been or maybe not even heard of the place, it is one of the most sparsely populated counties in England. In fact, for the first few days we saw more horses than people.
Seriously. The horse count was about fifty and we had only encountered about ten people. I took a photograph of one of the horses in a field opposite where we were staying. As proof.
For the record, Ludlow and Shrewsbury had lots of people and no horses. Just to show that I really did go, I’ve included a picture of me at Ironbridge. It’s a World Heritage site so I had to have a photo.
Shropshire was a very nice place to visit. If you want to get away from it all for a while and like having green space and fresh country air, then I highly recommend it. It certainly helped me clear out some of the cobwebs, take a fresh look at my writing and the current projects I’m working on. Now I’m back at home and ready to work. One short story is on a final (ish) draft so hopefully will be sending that off soon.
