After being ill this week, I was just about stir crazy today – as indeed were Angus and Casper! This was a gentle walk which allowed us to get some fresh air without unnecessary exertion. The views today were virtually non-existent, firstly the haze smothered everything and later the rain came to finalise it. I really like it round here though, and it’s certainly quiet and tranquil – only a distant group of people across Beacon Tarn broke the solitude today.
