Kos in a Time of Covid 19: 8th Day.

This post should have appeared yesterday. Unfortunately, my PC was temporarily disabled by a Windows 10 update. It had to be remotely invaded before it could be persuaded to comply with my wishes. Out of action for the whole day. But back now. Saturday sent us on another walk into the town to see more …

Just back from today’s walk, taking advantage of a brief spell of relative calm from the wind and rain coming in from the Atlantic. More on its way. But, undeterred, we trod the firm tracks and absorbed the spirit of the woods, made our daily connection with the trees. Wildlife mostly had the sense to …

The path into the trees. One of those days when the walk had to be a dash and dare it. We were forecast a brief respite, with possible sunshine, around 15:00. But that has now come an hour later, after we’ve been out. It was wet enough underfoot to keep us to the gravelled, firm …

The morning looked dull with skies full of potential rain, so we waited until after lunch for today’s walk. As it happened, the morning rain was sparse and short lived. But our afternoon saunter found us in a world full of contrasts in both light and shade and colour. Parts of the woodland have turned …

Horton Bridge. The forecast for today was, shall we say, variable? Rain was a possibility both this morning and this afternoon, with sunny periods in each half of the day. Here in the UK, our clocks go back an hour on the last Sunday in October, so the sun will set today around 16:54, making …

This forest road was constructed to allow traffic from the quarry. It now forms a wide and easy route for walkers. Very occasionally, it still serves the quarry, too. Drizzle when we set off on this morning’s walk in the forest, drizzle when we were returning home. But a dry spell in between. And our …

Kos in a Time of Covid 19: 6th and 7th Days.

Passing the castle walls. Thursday we decided to visit the Wetlands at Psalidi, where, apparently, a flock of flamingos feed in a small lake. The place is about 4 kilometres out of town, so we set off after breakfast, water in the backpack and camera on my shoulder. The coast of Turkey We passed the …

A brief respite from the wet weather today, bringing us bright sunshine. The next three days are forecast to be wet and windy. So, we took full advantage and set off after breakfast for our walk. We managed a four-mile saunter through the forest, and saw not another soul the entire time, which suited us …

Rain here all day today. Not the best weather for either walking or photography, though we’ll probably venture out when we spot a reduction in the amount of rain falling. I had to pop out earlier, however, and I’d been impressed by the colours in the trees bordering the local recreation ground, which I can …
