Just back from a walk with MrsG through our favourite Bluebell wood up near Burrator on Dartmoor. 

A few quick snap shots from my phone.  Hope you enjoy them.

Walking in Malta. The land of forum member Kukudrill.
Today walking from Golden Bay to the high cliffs on the other side of Gnejna bay and back. Passing at least two ancient watch towers  and various reminders of WW2 anti aircraft and radar sites

The wild flowers are a huge joy.

Too little, too late, too bad......

I went a walk in the Kent Weald today, from Tunbridge Wells via Groombridge and Speldhurst.  A scenic walk, with towering sandstone outcrops, and beautiful woodlands carpeted with bluebells and masses of wild garlic.

Short walk today up to Sharp tor on Bodmin moor, where I then sat for 3 hours on a ledge, with a flask of tea and some cheese and crackers, simply relaxing and enjoying the amazing view. 


The visibility this weekend has been so clear. With my binoculars I could clearly see the light house on Lundy Island 72km away.

Did a 7 mile circular, yesterday, just west of Four Crosses, Llandysilio. It must be over 10 years since we had walked in this area and the road improvements had altered things a bit, resulting in a quiet cul de sac to park in beside an underpass to cross the A483. We started walking south along the Montgomery Canal, but this does not link into other footpaths like normal canals, so a hairy barewire encounter was needed to access a bridge. It was some miles before we found a way marker, a farmer setting up a state of the art clay pidgeon thrower, pointed out the direction for Deuddwr correcting my pronunciation to Doowthar, surprisingly we stayed very close to the righteous way, quite unintentionally as the area is well blessed with them. It is that they are not marked or furnished and hedges appear to be allowed to grow over those places not provided with gates(plenty of these).


Altogether a lovely area to explore, got back on the canal near the Llanymynech aqueduct crossing the River Vyrnwy and my back just lasted out the last mile, a quiet sit down by last canal bridge eased of the damaged done by swinging over undulating barbed wire suspended by lively creeking posts.  ;D

Enjoyed a couple of pints of Black Sheep with a weekday Sunday roast in the Bradford Arms, Llanymynech, happily surprised that it was a bank holiday and we had not met another walker, except one lone trekker doing Offa's Dyke Trail on the canal footpath. (+ a few dogs accompanied)
