Day 67 mile 67: Nature Day
Pray you tread softly, that the blind mole may not hear a foot fall.
Shakespeare (The Tempest)
It is not often that I get to just go out, without any real plan whatsoever. This morning’s jaunt was one of these rare moments, I had considered going out at about lunch time, but found myself awake early so got to the front door and tried to decide which way to go.
I was rewarded by an amazing experience, exiting down under the expressway out of the overhead rumble of lorries I was greeted by the mix of blackbirds singing in the ivy of the railway embankment and the piping of oystercatchers on the sand beyond. Beside the path were littered mussel shells having obviously been dined upon at low tide by the gulls, now, split navy-blue bruise-bubbles with ivory reflections among the gravel. Looking along the path, towards the headland a couple of rabbits darted across the tarmac, zigzagging a pair of castaneous silhouettes against the gray of the cycle track.
It’s amazing what you can find when you just take the opportunity to see 🙂
Thanks for all the support as ever!
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
