I don't suppose that I'll ever go for a Fibonacci Walk across Somerset.
1 mile
1 mile
5 miles
8 miles
13 miles
21 miles
34 miles
55 miles
89 miles
On consecutive days. But I like the idea.
And Richard Long's work looks amazing in the grandeur of 6 Burlington Gardens.
I spent far longer there this afternoon than in the RA Summer Exhibition which as ever reminds me of shopping at TKMaxx. There are a few interesting things but I really don't have the patience to dig them out.

Oh I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. Our preview ticket is for tomorrow, and G is far more excited than I am.

There's one Angie Lewin, Kristina, and I know you like her. I never know why I bother going, it's the same every year!

I'm fine until you get to 13 miles.

I've thoroughly enjoyed perusing your book lists, Mary. We have astonishingly compatible reading tastes. I've noticed a few books -- The Owl Service and Beverley Nichols -- that I've just put on my to-read list. Thank you for your very own recommendation of Towers in the Mist. I was unfamiliar with Elizabeth Goudge's work, but I've just finished The Little White Horse. So, so lovely.

That's about twice as long as I'd manage these days, Bee!

I'm glad you've enjoyed the book list; I love seeing what other people are reading.
It's so, so long since I read Towers in the Mist, it was one of my first grown-up books and I fell head over heels in love with the characters. I don't think you can ever quite recapture that way of getting completely engrossed in a book when you're older.

I thought you might find this site of interest if you are planning your Fibonacci walking tour!

Maths Cat, I am touched by your confidence in me but perhaps I should mention that I struggled to pass O-level maths.
