A Journey into the Past

A couple of weeks ago, B and I packed our bags, prepared a summer picnic...

...and  into deepest Somerset we headed, to take a journey down the coast, on the West Somerset Railway.

Spending our day hopping merrily on and off steam trains, snapping gleefully away with the camera and revelling in a day shared together, we let ourselves be carried along on the winds and wonders of yesteryear. 

Amidst the gardens of a medieval castle sat we two, eating our picnic in the shimmering sun... 

...and as we travelled back up the tracks, with the warm afternoon light glowing through the windows of our last train, I didn't want the day to end.

Studying the wonder in B's eyes as we spied our first steam train and sharing secret smiles as we set off into the past, I realised we are on a wonderful journey into our future.
