Whilst sitting inside listening the rain battering the windows, I was looking through a few photos from last week’s evening walks. It feels like a distant memory.

This is our regular circular walk from the Chapel, down into the wooded valley and back along the lanes. It takes just under an hour and is a bit of a workout as it is quite steep in places. We walk and talk about what’s going on with our jobs but, invariably, get stopped by some beautiful view or a glimpse of wildlife. By the time we get home, we seem to have shrugged off the day’s worries.

Sadly as the nights draw in, we will get less opportunity and these walks will have to be at weekends, with a lot more waterproof clothing.
