Later, we took Kestrel out for a really boring walk just to look at some boring old traffic whilst walking on the boring old verge (I'd not got my hi-vis on so kept off the road itself). We promised him that just for a change there would be nothing orange hidden in the bushes. I don't want him to think that every time he goes out he is in an episode of Mission Impossible.

|He was slightly worried about the sound of the rope when it got caught on the brambles, so I did it over and over again until he wasn't bothered by it|
|Big...over the cattle grid...|
|and longer...If in doubt we stand still and wait. On the ground I am between him and the traffic.|
|Next week steam trains Kestrel, what do you think?|
