Tuesday was earmarked for drops at Thornbury and Weston-Super-Mare libraries, so we took Ted with us and had a little hobble (in my case) along the beach from Uphill Slipway.
My first sort-of jaunt since 2nd January when I voyaged from Bath to Bradford on Dru Marland's NB Eve and saw my first kingfisher.
Although more than three months have passed since then, in some respects it still seemed quite wintry, with Steepholm almost completely lost in mist and Brean Down lowery.
However, we followed the direction of hoof prints towards bluer skies. It was like the film 'Into The West' (except we were headed more northish).
... all the way up to the tea shack, then back to Uphill Slipway.
Making my own way back was rather more laborious, but the sunny skies were spreading and it felt more springlike with every limp. Hopefully it won't be too long before I can start doing some proper walking again.
