Scorching Saturday: Walking with a Sketchbook


Anyone who was in the UK this weekend will know what unusually cracking weather we had. Wahooooo: the summer's here!

Except, not quite, as of course it's gone back to normal this week.


Well, John and I have just joined The Rambler's Association, and went out with a walking group on Saturday, to see how my feet are coming along. We did a full day's ramble, up and down dale, lathered in suncream: it was a real scorcher. Above is a five minute quickie, flaking out during the lunch stop.

The feet are still in recovery mode, but coped well with minimal pain, so it looks like all the needle business is behind me (I DO hope so!).

Thanks folks - glad you like it.

We'll probably have snow next week Gary - anything's possible in Blighty!
