In the time of the virus: mark 2 day 20 (Tuesday)

Today I mostly went for a long walk, to meet up with an older family member to have flasks of coffee together on a bench by the canal.

A favourite walk, one I’ve done many times, and yet I saw something I’ve never seen before (that had been there all along). Look up!

The walk took me through the tunnels (Two Tunnels path) to Tucking Mill, then along the road to Monkton Combe and along another path to the magnificent aqueduct at Dundas (Kennet and Avon Canal). And then back the same way. Some of the photos are from yesterday, others were taken on other occasions (recycle, reuse….)

Can’t go in the church now, but I remember this window every time I walk past – the basket of bread and the balls of wool can just be glimpsed from the outside

I woke up feeling tired and sluggish, but the 8 mile walk put paid to that. Afterwards I just felt physically tired. A quiet afternoon finishing two craft projects (and several overdue emails) dealt with that too.

I think she’ll like it

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

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!
