Three people in two days have greeted me with the words, 'You're striding out well today.' Do I really walk differently from other people?
But it has meant a conversation about walking on or off roads, alone or in company, safety considerations and the state of village to village roadside footpaths (almost non-existent). Then somehow we touched on composting as a communal village activity, allotments and recycling.
I shall continue to stride out.
