I'm holding off Dartmoor until weekdays after the xchools have gone back and the pubs are open.  We will probably tie it in with a Click and Collect at the Okehampton Waitrose.  Three birds, one stone!

There a lot more moor that people up there. Even on ten tors weekend you can walk and see next to know one. If you choose your area right. 

Nice to do as you do though and explore those in between areas.  I have been doing that across Bodmin moor for several years and still have a number to reach. Some are hidden gems. Others you think why did I bother. Of course if you don't bother, then you never find those hidden gems.

That is so true, trouble is parking where I want and geting stuck behind a grockle's car when the world and his wife are up there.  Weekdays are an option for me, fewer people, fewer cars, more room at the bar, win/win/win!

Despite it being a Bank Hol, Castleton was relatively quiet. Very cold winds probably kept some away. Glad I got out, as the next few days are likely to be a bit poor. Iím hoping for a good spell of weather after the 12th, as Iíve really been missing Snowdonia.

Dartmoor on Easter Sunday in the glorious sunshine was not busy at all, as BuzyG mentioned.


And how good after warm 10 miles is a Willy's coffee ice cream in a chocolate waffle cone with flake and clotted cream on top  :smitten:
So many paths yet to walk, so little time left

Thanks. Itís my iPhone 12, but to be fair, my previous iPhone X took pretty much as nice pics. The software is very clever, so whilst zooming in might show the flaws, the overall images ďpopĒ.
