Cool enough to walk

Its been a very long, and very hot, summer here in Spain. The locals say the hottest they can remember. So our second favourite hobby, hill walking, has taken a back seat. In fact we have not had a "proper walk" since early June.

Yesterday some friends asked us to show them a local walk. Its about 8 miles return, and ideal for the first walk of the season. The temperature was down to 28c, with a cool wind. Pretty well ideal for walking.

The "official walking season", when the local walking groups start meeting again, is still two weeks off. But I suspect that now we have got our walking boots on again the wargaming will take second place. We will still play two or three times a week, but not every day as we have during the summer when it is too hot to do anything outdoors.

How's that old song go again? "Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun..."

Sounds like a lovely time.
