Wargames, Bikes, Deer and Badeners
Today is Wargames day at the DWG and the weather was lovely this morning so I decided to get my daily bike ride in before breakfast. My usual route follows the line of an old railway built in 1911 and now turned into a cycle/foot path. Along the route you pass some of the most beautiful Devon countryside and the fields nearest to the tree line are the favourite haunt of the local Red Deer in the early morning and late evening.
I have been trying to get a few pictures to show on the blog and finally got lucky this morning
This last shot shows the animal becoming aware of a ladies jogging group oblivious to my photography and the wildlife in the field beyond the trees they were jogging through. Needless to say they were talking quite loudly, as they ran, and that proved too much for the deer, and she was gone.
So I am rushing to have breakfast and get off to club as today we have our Annual General Meeting and I will be running a Hughes vs Suffren, Battle of Providien game, pictures to follow, and then the Badeners will be finished tomorrow with pictures of them to come. So until then, enjoy the deer.
