june : friday afternoon
I went for a little sniff around the swimming baths just down the road. In summertime, the pool is full of kids jumping off the pontoons, teenagers lying around and soaking up the sun, and older folk calmly and steadily swimming back and forth in the ‘laps area’.
Whenever my family come to stay, I take all and any kids down there, because…well, surely it’s some kind of Auntie Law. Right?
Today, though, it was quiet. Peaceful and still. A perfect day for a little walk.
