A morning hound walk
The weather was pleasantly cool but sunny when I set off this morning and nothing too scary to put the dogs off. I thought I would do a shorter version of yesterday's run as I wanted to record the location of the "big rocks" so off we went with my watch now working: we went up the road to join road number 3, then left towards Bonwell's field and still further until the road peters out. The views are amazing as you walk/run along here as you walk west and are looking down into the Shire Valley. Once at the end of the road, there is a T junction, right goes up to the rocks and the mysterious beyond ( I have never followed it to the end) and left takes you back down in to the cultivated area, so we went right first and over to the rocks: it really is stunning - even considering the areas that have burnt, the contrasting colours of the red bracchesteggia leaves and the green of the new shoots makes it so worth it.
