Blackdown hills

At last some sunshine and no wind either.  Took some pictures that I am sure were truly great of some friendly horses – no card in the camera !!!!! At my age and stage!!

We walked today with some good map reading, through a very remote and wild part of the hills, near Smeatharpe.  Fields with buildings left from the American airman’s occupation of the area , gave way to some really terribly messy farms. It was very disturbing to see quite so much junk lying around – old cars galore, plastic etc etc I couldn’t bring myself to photograph the worst of it and was slightly nervous about being caught with a camera – could have been accused of being from the council or worse.

Wellington boots were essential but the Hills were as lovely as ever in the almost warm sunshine.  Birds singing , woodpeckers calling , otherwise peaceful
