Along the River Wye in August.
Just back from a very pleasant hour indeed taking in a walk along the River Wye just here near my folks' house. The River Wye (well this bit of it) ambles along between Herefordshire and Gloucestershire and is a big old meandering thing as it passes through these parts.
The field you can see currently has corn or some such crop in it, but a few years back it had spuds, some of which were liberated in a daring potato-break back to Bristol by me, Seamus, Bag and Walshy after a summer caper up here in Herefordshire.
A fine, sunny walk today encountering geese, swans, ducks and two bouncy German pointers.
I may now need to recover any lost bodily liquid, an my brother too, so it could be time for an afternoon snifter. And today it is my turn.
