Walking the Haldon Hills
As you can see, walking in the area around our home leads through some beautiful countryside. These pictures were taken just a few miles down (or rather up) the road. The hills round here vary from an easy 1:15 to a strenuous 1:4 - even steeper if I go 'off piste'. I have graduated to carrying my full expected weight of 7 kilos. A walk of 15 miles last weekend on the coast path to Rame Head near Plymouth was about what I need to do each day. I was slightly stiff next day but not unduly so. Hopefully the next six weeks or so will include some similar treks.
Meantime I am enjoying the English countryside in spring - anyone know what has happened to all the frogs - no spawn anywhere - or is it simply too early?
