Gold on Green
This afternoon I took a socially distanced walk (or should I say wade) with Child No. 2 (the Key Worker).
I should have know that a walk along the towpath of the old Wilts and Berks canal would be a bit muddy considering the recent weather; but it was the slog up the public footpath/field boundary away from the canal that was the most difficult bit. I had never know the mud to be so cloying; and I had only cleaned my boots on Sunday! :(
However, it was a good romp, and Child No. 2 was in good form despite having been at work for seven days in a row. Trouble is, with one thing and another, I have to stick to social distancing rules for my own benefit. Roll on 2021 and a working vaccine!
The canal itself was a carpet of green algae, topped with autumn leaves. And we watched the sun go down over the Ridgeway through the trees on Grove Technology Park (Extra Photo.)
