Not sure if you noticed, but without having planned it that way, my posts about this May holiday is developing into a series of walk-themed posts. So far, we have had a windswept and a beautiful walk. Of course, all our walks are beautiful, but the one under that headline was particularly beautiful.
Thursday last week (May 6) was completely rained through, and we did not leave the cottage at all - very rare, something that happens maybe once a year. I enjoyed the rest, reading more during that one day than what I usually manage in an entire month, although my eyes did not like it much. Two book reviews are now on my back log.
Friday, the 7th, was a mix of sun and clouds but no rain. Because O.K. had his first vaccination appointment in the early evening, we decided not to venture far from home and repeated a walk we had done last year in May, following a circuit worked out and signposted by the local community of the three villages, taking in all four churches. Maybe you remember last year‘s post about it, with pictures of the four churches; you can find it by typing ‘four churches’ in the search box in the top left corner on this page.
This time, I only took a few photos during the walk, and none of the churches. The 12,5 km circuit is easy with only two steep ascents towards the end.
We were back in time for coffee and for enough rest for O.K. in order for him not to arrive at the vaccination center all exhausted and stressed out. All went well there, and apart from a bit of a sore arm the next day he did not feel any negative effects. His second appointment is in six weeks. I have not managed to get an appointment yet, but while I keep trying, I am not panicking - I still live largely risk-free, working from home and seeing only the same people (sister, parents, O.K.).
On his way home, O.K. brought freshly made pizza from the pizza place down the road. It was delicious and just what we needed to end another good day - half time for our holiday.
