I felt the need for a saunter. My mind has been a little busy with all the different things going on and it needed to be lined up and put in order to relieve the jumbled thoughts. Max was asking for a walk, and I decided we would go for a drive then a walk along the canal I had found on a map.
It was lovely and peaceful, shimmering water, chug chug of an engine of a boat going through the lock gates, sounds of birds and a beautiful setting sun with views of the river.
The village is called Purton not far from Sharpness, as I walked the sun lowered, filling the sky with pink marshmallow, turning to red and orange. On the way home I stopped to take the redder skies and then the view from the motorway bridge.
I came home much calmer in my thoughts, made an apple and cranberry crumble, had an enjoyable restful evening, and look forward to starting the day tomorrow.
