241/366 Time to Rest Sir.

Yesterday, the 9th of April 2021, barely two months before his 100th birthday, His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip ended his tour of duty on earth. Time to rest Sir, duty done.

The smoke in the picture is from one of the rounds of the 41 gun Solemn Death Salute. I was at the waterfront.

I arrived at the waterfront about 4 minutes before the salute started. Fortunately, there weren’t very many people where I was. I had wanted to go up to the Falklands Gardens, but there was a large crowd there (as there was on the other side of the water, Spice Island. I really don’t want to be in large crowds at the moment.

I’ve been able this week to reach my Walk1000 target yesterday, so any distance walked today and tomorrow are a bonus. I did my normal route, with about a 1 mile diversion added on. I took my main camera out with me. But I’ve yet to look at the pictures I’ve taken. It was a very pleasant walk, taken a little bit early for a Saturday as rain was threatening. As it happened , the rain when it did arrive, was very light. Apart from the solemnity of the time, it was a very pleasant walk.

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.
