This walk took place at ten in the morning, a crazy time to go for a walk normally because we would have been fried by the heat and pressure-cooked by the humidity. Never mind that that did not make sense but the general idea is to avoid walks after ten in our kind of climate. However, some days, the sky is dressed in woolly clouds and a sister breeze decides that on that morning she needs to discharge some of that wind power gently over the earth. On such a glorious morning, a walk after ten is really wonderful.

It was a great walk as usual, not so much to lose weight but to just be a part of the peace and freshness of the natural environment.
