Rest Day

Did a low impact run this evening to shake out the legs a little with my neighbor and I discovered what is easily my favorite part of Oxford thus far... Port Meadows. It's an enormous expanse of flood plane for the upper portion of the Thames River that flows all the way to London. The water is clear and swimmable, the fields beautifully dotted with flowers, horses, and cattle, and the atmosphere incredibly serene. In a way, it reminded me of certain parts of the American south because of the estuary like geography. Can't wait to return here for a proper workout. The ideas are piling up.
