Pepys buys a rabbit that he subsequently discovers to be ‘deadly old’ but eats it never-the-less.
Today we went with a friend for a walk along the local canal which as my readers will know I find to be the quickest way of getting back to the 19th century. This is a weekday after school holidays are over and the whole gives a different feel.
I found a rather endearing map clearly aimed at children though useful for adults. Ctrl and + to enlarge.
This image sums up the spirit of the canal system which I find is reflected in most of the people I meet, who have in common the desire to seek an alternative life style. You would not wish to offend this nice man would you.
Since my back was sore I did half the walk eastwards – about a mile – and let my wife and friend continue their walk. I just enjoyed sitting on a bench and watching the boats chug by and the birds and squirrels going about their daily business.
