As it was blisteringly hot today, I didn’t venture out until late. I decided to take a drive with the car windows open, allowing the wind to cool me down. It wasn’t a long drive, but it was down the local country lanes. It was an exploration of sorts.
I passed a junction that went over an old stone bridge, it intrigue me. Only a few hundred meters down the road was a car park, so I pulled up and took a walk. The area was cool and had the fresh smell that a river has at the end of a hot summers day. Perfect!
Once on the bridge, I saw a hungry spider having a feast. Its web was covered in tiny flies, and the handsome predator was moving quickly from meal to meal. Behind the spider was the golden glow of the setting sun. Glorious!
