A Magical Day
Life can be hectic, life can be stressful and usually we put our needs last. But sometimes you just have to say today my health is at the top of the 'to do' list. After a big operation last year and a huge operation the year before my fitness has suffered. I have put on weight and I just can't do what I did before, but I hadn't realised how little I exercise now. Gone are the early morning run/walks the insomnia has seen to that, but even walking has suffered. On my new phone I have a little app that tells me how much I walk, it not completely accurate as obviously I don't carry it around in the house but the average over a day is less than 5000 steps a day. when I was easily managing 10,000 before. So things have got to change! I woke up to a gloriously cold blue-sky day on Friday with a beautiful mist hovering over low lying areas. I decided to head to the river at Malpas where the mist would be lying in the valley. Wow, I am so glad I did. It was one of those magical days, I took my camera so I will share the beauty with you.
My beautiful home city
These beautiful swans were swimming along beside me as I walked along the path, what better company could you ask for.
As they swam into the distance they all took flight, sadly too far away for me to get a photo of the beautiful sight.
The icy mist was lying along the water, making the boats looks ghostly.
By the time I returned the tide had gone out so the birds were searching the river bed, though this trio decided to chance their luck on the cricket field.
I hope you are all having a great weekend,
