The weather continues to be lovely, and all my indoor activities stay neglected in the heat. I lie out in the sun reading, eating ice cream and drinking water, or go on day trips with my partner and his family. Today we went to the forest of Dean, and went for a little turn on the Wye in a canoe. Since my partner is not the most practical of people, but still insisted on sitting in the back and steer, we drifted quite a bit, but managed to get up the stream and back okay. For a bit we had the company of a swan, and although the water didn’t look too inviting it did help cool us down.
My photos are piling up, so I will have plenty to do for the cloudy days in the hopefully not too near future. Here are some from the other day, when we finally found the parasol, making the afternoons in the garden slightly more bearable.
