    Default take a turn

    Dear teachers,

    Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    “Half an hour to breakfast” he thought; “I’ll take a turn in the Gardens.” (J. Galsworthy, “Caravan”)

    He wanted to take a turn on a bicycle.

    take a turn = go out for a walk

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
