164/366 Out for a walk

This week I’ve managed to clock up just over 20 miles. For some people, that isn’t much, but for me it’s a reasonable distance. For the month that’s about 70 miles, which keeps me on target for the Walk 1000 project.

Out for my walk this morning, I covered the route I normally take. The little beastie at the top of the post was performing at the back of Trinity church. There were three or four squirrels in the area, they are always a pleasure to watch – even if they are pests. I keep on meaning to take some seed with me on my weekend walks. I have managed to remember once! Not impressive.

There’s been only one morning where I haven’t gone out for a walk this week, that was Wednesday, it was because it was absolutely tipping it down. The rain lasted all day, so I didn’t go out at all. That was a bit frustrating, but there you go.

The morning sky has been quite variable as you might expect, with some clear skies, heavy clouds, threatening rain and on a couple of occasions delivering the same, whilst out walking. One of the more interesting mornings had streaks in the sky that were visible from the moment I arrived, and developed in intensity over the short period of time I was at the waterfront. Here’s a picture of that sky;

I walk a loop of about three miles Monday to Friday part of which is along the waterfront. There are usually only three occasions when I don’t walk, if I’m poorly, if I oversleep (but even that has changed, and I have become less rigid about when leave the house) and if it is raining.

We are a little bit paranoid about encounters with strangers at the moment, and I do my utmost to avoid them as much as possible. I’m probably adding several hundred steps to my normal walk where I keep crossing the road to avoid people. It’s frustrating to have to be this careful but we do think it’s worth it.

I’ve just been watching the weather forecast for the week ahead on Countryfile, whilst it looks quite variable and there are definite patches of rain, especially on Wednesday, the forecast doesn’t specify time so I don’t know if It will affect me in the morning.

What I’ve also noticed is that my notes for each walk are inadequate, so I need to focus on that a little more.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
