With warmer air upon us this morning, my Winter jacket was not required for our country road walk. Again, we were able to do our half-mile walk for the second day in a row. If this keeps up, I'm going to enroll in a pole vaulting course just to snub my nose at my right hip.

For the first half of our journey to London today we traveled slowly along old familiar back roads that Pheebs and I have traveled before so I knew where the good stopping spots were for our leg stretches and water breaks along the way.
The last half of our journey took us down a few roads I had never been on before and that of course was a real treat to see some scenery I had never seen before.
|WE CAME UPON THIS LARGE FIELD OF GREEN AND PURPLE CABBAGES|
|AND YES, THIS IS WHERE THOSE CABBAGE PATCH DOLLS OF YESTERYEAR CAME FROM|
