Had a lovely jaunt, along the SW coast path, near Tintagel today.  :)

A recent family bereavement has left me with shortfall of opportunity to get out and walk, so I suppose the route of pallbearer I undertook yesterday, may be taken as one of my walks. Fairly uneventful until the approach to the grave came into sight and my side on the coffin with being to the for, had committed me to the narrow side of the grave. A narrow ledge of artificial grass needed an exceptionally sure and accurately placed foot, as I had to help lift the coffin high over an inconveniently placed headstone of venerable age.



As I imagined plummeting to the bottom of the pit that was opening up to my limited vision, I imagined hearing a murmur in my ear from Auntie R;

"You nearly beat me to it, dear!"

Aww BWW, a bittersweet description of your recent 'walk'. Pleased to hear you negotiated the headstone OK and didn't join Auntie R in her resting place :)

During NEXT week, mostly I will be walking from my tent to breakfast in Pooley Bridge before catching the Ferry from Pooley Bridge to Howtown and walking along the Fusedale valley before turning northish to return to my tent via Loadpot Hill, Messrs. Bonscale and Arthur's Pikes and finally the shores of Ullswater  :)


Then, the next day, I'll be scampering over either Hallin Fell or Steel Knotts (whichever one I didn't do on Sunday)  O0

I walked around Farlington Marshes, here in Portsmouth and today I ran around it, non stop, so pleased with myself. Just before arriving at the marshes car park I drove along the M275 and onto the A27 section to get to it. All three lanes were very busy, when suddenly. almost without warning there was a tremendous shower of heavy rain! I was on the inside lane, driving at about 50mph when suddenly ahead of me, an open topped car screeched onto the hard shoulder and braked hard. The driver didn't look, he just opened his door and jumped out! How the car in front of me missed him I do not know, it must have been by less than an inch! As I drove past, the man, totally soaked, was frantically trying to put his car hood up, totally oblivious to the danger he was in.

Within 10 minutes I was parked and in glorious sunshine.

I walked along the south eastern shore of Bewl Water today, a reservoir on the Kent/Sussex border.  It's serene and beautiful and in some places it's fringed by woodland.  A lovely walk.

Local walks for me during my week off work.  I was planning on getting up to the Lakes for a last "go" at a mountain before winter sets in but the weather forecast has been rubbish for that side of the country and, call me strange but, I don't really want to walk in unfamiliar mountainous terrain on my own in bad weather and then return to my tent and sit in that on my own in the pouring rain.

sounds sensible to me  O0

you do the walks for enjoyment so no point doing them if you're not going to enjoy them. They will be there next year  ;)

Quick wonder on South Bodmin moor last evening.  Just made it up as I went along.  Rather windy and squally.  I'm still finding new routes up there after all these years.  I do enjoy getting out after work. 

It's not quite the same in the winter, when it's cold and dark before you even set off, but it's still enjoyable.

Guess that comes from sitting at a computer, in an office with no proper windows, all day.

I walked over the downs from Woodingdean on the outskirts of Brighton to the coast road at Saltdean today. I took in a stretch of the South Downs Way but much of my route was off the trail. Tremendous views    :)
