9°C, clear & sunny
No ride today: walking in Derbyshire instead. The rivers are deep- near to overflowing, and the mud thick black stuff. Deceptively – it’s not as deep as it looks, there are limestone rocks near the surface. Those new walking boots are superb.
McNaught: With the first day of clear sunset, I really hoped to see the new wonder-comet, just as the sun went down. It’s too late by a few days- and when it was higher- we had cloudy skies here in England.
