Yesterday evening I went for a walk over to Wimille 1½ kilomètres from Wimereux railway station & a very pretty walk too along a narrow white road bordered by green fields & rural cottages, past pretty meadows, over a bridge, along a fine avenue flanked by tall trees into the quiet village. Here I bought some postcards of Wimille & la vallée from my hunchback friend and then retraced my steps. From the bridge over the Wimereux where it passes through Wimille I stood for a few minutes to watch 2 enthusiastic fishermen (English officers) with rod & line playing for trout & other fish.
