It was one of those lazy days. I went and got the papers, and sat and read those for about an hour or so. Then I went for a walk, down to the waterfront, along to the turn off for trinity church which houses Handel’s music organ, where I paused briefly to see if the music concerts had re-started. They have. Then I walked to the far end of the high street and visited the works where I didn’t buy anything up to the newsagents where I bought a shipping magazine because they have an article this month about Southampton Pilots and I’m interested in hearing about them. I then visited the first of two supermarkets, they each have something that I want, which the other doesn’t stock going between the two shops via the cockle ponds in Walpole Park, where there was quite a gaggle of geese and seagulls, which I stopped and admired for a couple of minutes and in the distance I could see model yachting club was having a vigorous race, there were nine participants that I counted. I must admit, I’d like to have a go at that. On to the second supermarket and then home. All in, a trip of about three miles. Could have done more, but at least it’s something.
This evening I watched one of the BBC programmes I quite like (until they get too preachy that is) Countryfile. Tonight, they had quite a long article about Mya-Rose, the bird girl. @BirdgirkUK. I do admire her.
