My first walking excursions see’s me leaving the church at Carleton. A footpath allows me to cross the fields to reach the river. Nettles and docks abound, an harmonious arrangement. Whilst the nettles may sting you, the yellow dock can abate that sting. The smell of pineapple lifts from crushed mayweed. Once across the river a convenient bench offers a welcoming place to sit and watch.
Beneath the water a pike seeks its prey, avoiding a plastic bottle. Whilst a heron watches as a swan passes. Nature offers its balm, whilst science offers a vaccine. Tranquility.
My battle with WordPress today was successful after a fashion, thank you to all who sent me tips on how to succeed at manipulating WordPress photos.
