Taking in the sights

2008-05-24 00:00

The incredible — for England — weather continues. In the 12 days that I’ve been here, it has rained only one morning, plus a few showers at night. It is sunny and warm, even hot, like autumn at home.

Close up, the houses are mostly built of red brick, a few of grey flint, perhaps in addition to brick, and a small number are painted white. Roads that wind between and through the villages are mostly peaceful, narrow (often less than three metres wide) and bordered by trees or hedges. These lanes are usually almost deserted any day of the week and are lovely to pedal along in silence other than the singing of birds.
