We managed to carry out our sponsored walk today, postponed from when I was first struck down with strep throat or whatever you'd like to call it.
It was a good day to go walking. The sky was a split between blue over the village and white cumulus clouds over the neighbouring one, half and half for our walk. Combined with the trees that line much of the walk we were cool and comfortable most of the way around.
There was just one downside to what was a very pleasant walk and that was the number of people who refused to respond when we greeted them in passing. The main culprits were cyclists, given that cycling was not supposed to be done through the Woods they were already on dodgy ground in my book.
On the way back we encountered the gigs racing at Porthleven Gig Day. I only just managed to get a shot of the gigs in the harbour as they were already heading in as we approached the harbour. My phone went flat as we entered the village because I had been using Location Tagger to tag the photos i took on the way around Penrose Woods.
As the first full day out for me since getting poorly and, while I got around without any problems, I do feel tired now. We were off to the cinema to see the latest Narnia film but will do that tomorrow. Cathy has gone upstairs to lounge on the bed and catch up on Deal or No Deal streamed from Channel 4's catch up website using the Lenovo Thinkpad (we refer to it now as her computer). I am writing this using The Journal programme,(actually typing on the HP 2710p, because watching and writing seems to work best in landscape on this widescreen. I am watching BBC programmes, Sun Sea and Bargain Spotting currently, I have downloaded previously. I have taken to downloading programmes to cover for times when Cathy is streaming programmes, my BT connection is currently 1.5MB - not a lot in some people's book but it works for me most of the time. Next year the exchange is going to upgrade and allow much more speed but I am not complaining.
Now to send this to the blog from The Journal. Posting photos didn't work earlier but text is fine, (I reaquainted myself with blogging via email and Flickr earlier today, that works well with text and photos).
