Foggy foggy day. We took our flasks and buns for a walk to the top of a hill to see the view. There was no view (of course), though it gradually revealed itself to us as we sat and chatted … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: mark 2 day 18 (Sunday)

After a murky start, the mist eventually cleared and the sun shone. Perfect for the new-to-us local walk we’d planned. Inspired by the map of places provided by Bathscape, we set off to visit Carrs Wood in Twerton. I’m so … Continue reading
