Sue joined me for the second of what is becoming a series of short walks from Graeme and Eileen's house in Wilmslow.
They have the lush countryside of Cheshire on their doorstep, and it was again a pleasure to stroll along the quiet tracks and footpaths.

The hedgerows were alive with flora, and with Sue chatting to Graeme I could take a few snaps without causing a delay.
Near the edge of Lindow Moss is an old building that Graeme says is the oldest habitation in Wilmslow. (Near where it says 'Moat' on the map below.)
The brambles are in full flower at present. Hopefully in a couple of months there will be a fine crop of blackberries.
There remain large areas of peat bog, mostly already excavated, leaving puddles like this one.
After about 8 km, and rather less than two hours, we were back at base in time for Sue and me to return home for the delivery and fitting of some new living room curtains. Very nice they are too, but it's a shame that Lockdown has put the mockers on decorating the room.
Here's our 8 km route - thanks go to Graeme for acting as guide.
