They forecast very hot weather today - and they were right. At one point we thought we might find a sheltered spot in the woods, hoping that it might give us some relief from the heat: however it was just as hot and sticky there. One good point, though: the heat had kept everyone else away. Normally we meet lots of dog walkers in the woods but today we had the place to ourselves. The only other living creatures we saw were a few squirrels.
It was quiet and peaceful.
