evening walks…

You know how sometimes there is a perfect late-summer evening? Soft warm air, dark green trees and just a hint of pre-autumn mists as the sun goes down? Last night was one of those evenings and 15 of us (misc. Warwick staff) set off for a four and a half mile walk around Ashow. This is almost a perfect walk, including Ashow village (pretty but posh) the little footbridge over the Avon, water-meadows, paths through woods and so on. Walking with pleasant but undemanding company and back to the start by dusk.

I rarely set off for an evening walk nowadays, but this planned event has reminded me of why I liked it. So expect to see lone bag-lady look-alike roaming the Warwickshire countryside until the evenings close in again.

There are another two evening walks planned – ask me if you would like to know more.
