Thorney Island

Buddha said, 'when walking, just walk'. He meant that the act of walking should allow you to empty your thoughts, not dwell on or regret the past and not to worry about the future but to allow the present time to be the object of your full concentration. That can be accomplished at Thorney. It's quiet, peaceful, the boats all slip past gently, the sea laps around, the seabirds call, time is marked by the chimes of rope against mast. Stress diminishes, the urge to kill recedes. You slow down, your mind stops wandering and you find yourself in the arms of mindfulness and tranquillity. Time passes. Time stops. Lots of lost time passes. All is good.
Don't miss the train.


Take the time to read the countryside code for yourself and please stick to it at all times.
