Dr B had some dental surgery and it was a longer, more difficult procedure than originally anticipated (although not requiring general anaesthesia). I took the day off work to keep an eye on him, but he recovered well and quickly. I decided to capitalise on the unwonted freedom and head out for a longer walk than I’m able to manage on an ordinary weekday morning. This time I did take the right-hand loop.
It’s pleasant to walk at mid-morning when the worst of the traffic has gone and what remains is the background buzz from a distant arterial road. At that hour of the day and this time of year, the sunshine is bright but the UV factor still low enough that you don’t need sunblock. I walked for about an hour and felt much better mentally and physically when I returned to the house. Tomorrow it will be back to the office, which is even less appealing than a long, uphill haul!
