We had a leisurely 15 km walk today. Conditions were cloudy to begin with but brightened over the morning as the cloud broke up into beautiful balls of cotton.

Ian goes off for a haircut, the most expensive one he's ever had - this is obviously an up market kind of place! I go off in search of a trim as well but have to wait for my appointment. I go ...
