Can you believe it? We were headed to Wales but realised on the way there that we were interested in too many things on the way. So we changed our plans and were happy to visit parts of Hampshire, Wiltshire and Cornwalls.
Travelling in a car doesn’t make for a lot of exercise, but we did our best and I will try to resume a healthier routine as soon as today is over (today being Sunday)
One good news is, in spite of cooked English breakfasts every morning, including all sorts of fat and sweet goodies, and enjoying every minute of it, I lost almost three pounds… Must be a side-effect of not sitting hours on end at that trial as a juror.

Experimenting with barbed wire at sunset
