In the time of the virus: day 94

Well today was, as predicted, gert hot again.

As planned, we set off for our walk just before 8am, and even so at times it was almost too hot for us.  But what a glorious walk it was: another ‘not the Black Forest’ walk.  The walk was part wooded and mostly for the long views.  To  be sure to finish before the real heat of the day we cut it short at the start by walking directly across town to where the Cotswold Way goes up onto the ridge.  There we enjoyed the clear long views.

It was the walk we did a few weeks ago to Kelston Round Hill, but then the wild flowers were of spring; today they were definitely summer wild flowers.  Scabious, convolvulus, thistles, knapweed, buttercups, oxeye daisies, vetch – just some of what we saw.  As we got to the top meadow we heard skylarks.  We sat for a while and enjoyed the view across to Bristol (so clear we could make out various landmarks, including the old Severn Bridge in the distance).  Then we took a path new to us down to the Cheese Farm at Kelston and celebrated with drinks and treats at their cafe (all takeaway for now).

The green space across the valley is Bath City Farm

Back home, a few jobs were jobbed (and even more weren’t).

Cut out and ready to sew – 5 more face coverings for a neighbour

The fitbit strap is now almost as much duct tape as strap, and its not going to last much longer. Time to buy a new one sadly

Tomorrow we have a garden visit planned – somewhere we usually go at least once a month in the spring/summer/autumn, and have been missing.  Looking forward to it.

I hope you have something to look forward to, and that I’ll see you tomorrow xx

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
