Forecast today was for very hot and windy so we made an early start for a walk over the hills and through the valleys of Exmoor behind Porlock.  The wind bit was right - we were actually quite cold over the hilly sections but when we dropped down into the wooded valley we were grateful for the shade as the wind disappeared.  There was a surprising amount of water about too, some of the fords were interesting but we stayed dry shod.

I had a walk yesterday, just beyond Portsmouth, part of which is one on my running routes. I'd always noticed a worn path to the right of my normal route so I thought I'd follow it. I felt just like an explorer, it twisted and turned over fallen trees, under low branches, and through gaps between a number of bushes. I then suddenly came across a stream and a very attractive little open glade, just perfect for a picnic!

I have been doing my normal running route for a few years and see people now and again on this track but have never seen anyone on the other track, so now I'm wondering who is using it?

I stayed in Dover this week and walked the famous White Cliffs, on Tuesday walking from Hythe via Folkestone to Dover, and on Wednesday walking from Deal to Dover.   On Thursday I walked from Littlestone-on-Sea to Lydd via Dungeness.  Every day was hot and sunny    :)   Fantastic!  I saw a lot of waymarkers for the England Coast Path.

A quite walk out around the local fields and lanes this evening.  Realy happy to note that several local gates and Stiles have been rebuilt since I last walked that route in the spring.  Including one completely new walkers gate, bounded by a brand new stone wall.  Someone has put in a fair lump of money..  O0


Who does pay for such things?

A short local section of the SWCP with MrsG today.  From Rame head to Port Winkle. The finish point is only  afew miles from our home. Yet we had never walked the few miles, accross the Mod ranges, in all these years.  Even more strange as I once ran a project based at fort Tregantle.  Nice little stretch any way and better late than never ay :)

Up to the Avon Dam and the Zeal Tramway today.  First walk for over a week after a really nasty cold.  I've still got no puff and coughing well. 
We retraced part of a route that scared me to death as a young teenager at Outward Bound School - so seared into my memory I can still remember the route I took across the moors after over 50 years.  It involved a solo overnight under a tarp followed by a long trek in near zero vis with a map so out of date the Avon Dam wasn't on it and the 2 Moors Way was not a thing.
