It's always a pleasure to visit Styal Woods, even when - like today - the sun isn't shining.
This was my routine 'Friday' walk. Adjusted to Thursday this week due to a commitment tomorrow (which is now later today!). The 'new normal' restricts me to one companion, who can be from another household [I hope that if anyone reads this in a generation's time, they will be suitably bemused]. Paul B, having been in the right place at the right time, was my worthy companion today.
We set off through the woods. Just imagine what the colours would be like if the sun was shining.
