Well, not quite. It’s a serious business, and we looked very suave in our red and blue life vests as we took a trip out on the river today. It’s been absolutely glorious, and wonderful to just putter along watching the ducks, geese and swans with their new families from their side of the water. The river wasn’t that busy, but people we saw waved and smiled, and it was one of the most relaxing and tranquil experiences I can recall. Much needed after the recent thunderstorms and frustrations of life at the moment. I’ve caught the sun again, as proven when I took my watch off tonight and have a lighter mark on an already bronzing arm. It’s very rare that I tan actually. In fact, I can’t remember ever being toasty brown, even as a child. Although my hair is dark (or was before it became peppered with grey) , my skin is fair and I tend to burn. I’ve had those horrendous accidents of falling asleep in the sun and blistering, then peeling and looking like some kind of skin shredding alien! I remember such occasions as being damn painful, especially trying to walk when the skin on your legs has shrunk by what feels like 30%, then it gets itchy and sweaty. Yuk. These days, it’s walking out with the dog on sunny days that is giving both of us a healthy glow. With recent days being some of the hottest so far this year, getting out on the water was cooling and refreshing. Hopefully, we’ll all sleep well tonight.
