England - We Begin in the Peaceful Countryside
The transition from bustling cities to the serenity of the countryside is very welcome.
A morning walk through the countryside seemed like a good idea. We had eaten a hardy breakfast, the sun was peeking through the clouds promising good walking weather and we had the day to ourselves. So, off we went with no particular destination in mind and no raincoats. The first hour was glorious – green hillsides, fluffy sheep, well marked paths
and not a care in the world.
Then it happened…with no warning the clouds turned black and rain gushed out.
Within minutes we were soaked and there was nothing to do but laugh!
