To slip like the ghost of wind through the grass

At noon I went for a walk in the forests at Luukki, by lake Myllyjärvi to lake Hauklampi and back from there. Few people were out, as it was clouded, rather cold and occasionally there was a bit of rain.

After dinner I went for a walk with my middle daughter, who has recovered from the fever. We had a nice long walk to a nearby pond, and when returning, a cat came to say hello.

My feet got tired because of the walking, even though I walked for only two hours today. I haven't done so much walking as I used to, as I have been riding the bicycle for five hours or so each week while commuting. Walking is different, different muscles are needed.
