getting out of the house is good

Even if I do everything alone.  Anyway, last weekend I took advantage of the miraculous sunny day and took a walk from the end of Holloway Road to the wind turbine, which is up on a hill in a nature reserve area.

It was a really steep and muddy climb to the top, my thighs were definitely aching.  Coming down was even worse, since it was steep and muddy, I nearly slipped a number of times.  Anyway, it was worth it for the spectacular views, even if it was really windy at the top.  Yet, interestingly enough, despite the strong winds up there, the wind-turbine itself was barely moving!

I also took advantage of the good weather to ride my bike down to Island Bay.  Not such spectacular vistas, but the lovely smell of sea and salt upon the air, despite the cold wind blowing.  At least it wasn’t raining.
