(Summary blog only.   Last full blog was Day 0368).

A relatively quiet and fairly uneventful day today.

It included many of the normal components of a “typical” day, including work at the museum for Val, then for me some Spanish, a few hours at the gym, a bit of shopping and some washing.   And of course another pace-building walk (alongside the lagoon-shore) later in the afternoon.

I made dinner (jacket potatoes with tuna and sweetcorn) for when Val came home, then later on in the evening we went out for another walk (up through the Bawn then down Church Road in to town) with just a brief diversion to pick up a couple of beers.   Very relaxing!

Medium level tide in the lagoon today Beautiful wisteria in the Milford estate.   Sadly for me it always reminds me of final exams at university, as it flowers at around that time

The swan is still there on the nest in the Gaybrook stream estuary, jealously guarding its eggs
