I wrote half a blog post earlier this afternoon and then my computer froze and I had to turn it off and back on, and then I had to leave for a dinner date, so that was that. And now I hate the post I wrote, so I'm just going to write briefly about the next stage of our Pilgrimage.
Originally, we had planned to walk south to our parish church and from there to another church north of us that I attend sometimes when I have time off work, and then to a couple of other churches. Well, there is just no way to walk from our parish church to the next church because the two-lane highway which is the only road except for the expressway passes over a river for more than a couple of miles and there is no shoulder at all, just a 100 foot drop into a river, and the bridges are even worse.
So, we decided to start the walk to the next church from our house instead of from our church. I guess we could have walked back home first, but no thanks. It had been our intention to begin the walk at the beginning of Lent, but we didn't get started until today. After a day full of fairly heavy but ineffectual snow yesterday, today was beautiful and clear and ten degrees warmer, thank goodness. So, now we are on the way.
The road that we are walking on is the one where we frequently meet bovine creatures that have escaped from their pastures, so this might get interesting.
