Patio Lunch

Yesterday the friendly sound of post landing through the letter box brought me the latest edition of Country Walking Magazine. The weather was glorious so I dipped into the pages whilst enjoying lunch on the patio.

Out Walking

After lunch I set off for a walk along a sun dappled shady pathway to Leegomery Pools, hoping to see the goslings. They were there in all their cuteness.

Later in the day I enjoyed ‘Fine Dining’ on the patio as the sun set and the birds sang evensong :-)

PS: I intended to walk a different route this afternoon but the weather was extremely warm so I chose this shady walk instead. As I approached home I noticed a couple coming towards me. We arrived together as I turned off on a side way towards my house. As I did so I realised that one of the walkers was a former colleague of mine. I turned around with a sunny smile and said hello. The response was a rather reluctant grumpy hello so I chose to carry on walking. I remembered that we had eye contact a few weeks ago whilst in a socially distancing supermarket queue (he was looking back at me from the front of the queue). I waved and he immediately turned away…

  1. Although winter doesn’t start here for another 10 days, but this morning was the coldest day of the year so far. So I am envious of you wearing a sun hat. And of the ducklings sunning themselves near the water.

      I also love the frosts and snow of winter but I have not experienced them for many a year.

      Such is weather during an inter glacial period.
