There's nothing like a gentle walk to fill the writer's mind with new ideas. Wandering down an English country lane in the spring sunshine. Strolling along a river bank, watching swans gliding along under the willows.
Leaning over a bridge as cheerily-painted boats bob in the water. Fresh air, exercise and companionship and afterwards a thumping great sandwich and a mug of tea. There's nothing like it.
If you think this is just an excuse to show a few pictures from a weekend afternoon away in the West Country, you're dead right.
Denizens of Devon will recognise the area within easy wandering distance of the Quayside at Exeter, and the lane is not too many miles away. Lovely.
