And what a pleasure it was.
Just the two of us. Too late for dog walkers, and too early for the drunks, we had the estate to ourselves. It’s cool tonight, 13C (56F). No breeze, sky broken with an occasional cloud but nothing sinister.
On the air was the sound of the sea.
No surprise there as it’s only 250 meters away.
Yet it was muted as there is hardly any wind.
As we walked past houses with windows open the sound of their television and someone playing a CD or whatever. Nice music, not loud, just enough.
At the back of the estate is a large copse of trees and I heard an owl calling.
My night favorite will always be an owl.
Unfortunately there was no badger running down the road. The wife loves to see it as well as the occasional Muntjac deer strolling down the sidewalk in the evening without a care in the world.
I wish I had the words to capture the peace, but I’m no wordsmith.
So, be at peace and rest quietly in the night‘s gentle embrace.
