So finally, after vegetating for 3 days, I got myself out the house for a walk.

I haven’t done much walking since 19 May when I spent the day in Totnes before my booking in Stoke Gabriel.

Totnes from the castle ramparts

I’ll write more about Totnes at a later date…it’s a super little place; mentioned in the Domesday Book.

I had planned on walking every day while in Stoke Gabriel but it rained every day for a whole week after I arrived, and on the one day I saw a gap in the rain and went out, it caught me halfway through and I got soaked, which resulted in a nasty bug that laid me low for the rest of my stay, although I did get out for a couple of short walks just before I left.

Just before the heavens opened 😌
Our green and pleasant land – Devon

Since being home I’ve been cat and fish sitting for my daughter en famile, binge watching Marcella on Netflix on Friday, attending a whole day Stocks and Trading course with Marcus de Maria via zoom on Saturday (I hate zoom), and today I read a book from beginning to end in one sitting; Pyramid. Awesome concept.

At the end of which I decided to go for a walk and chase the sunset. The family are home tomorrow, so I’ll be heading back to my bolt hole then.

Meanwhile…

St Augustine’s story

Augustine, a monk from Rome, was sent by Pope Gregory to bring Christianity to Britain. He landed in Pegwell Bay, Kent in AD597 with 40 followers, and set up his mission in Canterbury.

A perfect picture

On the way back I stopped in the clifftop Park for a swing

And then took a turn past the fairy houses where I noticed a new addition painted by Vince Pugh on the side of a shipping container. Isn’t it just gorgeous

I managed 7kms which is more than I’ve walked since last week Thursday when I spent 2 hours walking along the River Dart in Totnes before my train departure.

I had planned on walking another 2 sections of the Saxon Shore Way this weekend, but my lungs are still tight and I’m not feeling well. So I’ll pick up again perhaps next week.

I’m hoping to finish writing up the last 2 stages of the Thames Path this week.

And I’m hoping to find my walking mojo….
