In this part of the world we have 100 inches of rain a year so when we have bright sunny days like today it is best to take advantage of it! I feel very privileged to be able to do this – I neglected the sorting, unpacking and general admin of moving into a new home to start exploring my locality! I took a local bus to Tavistock my nearest town and then walked home……….
7 miles (11 kms)
I started here in the park where lots of families were enjoying the sunshine and catkins and spring blossom were showing their splendor
I felt buoyant and full of the joys of spring!!
these ponies roam wild in this area and on nearby Dartmoor – I love the stocky ones with short stubby legs, gentle eyes and shaggy manes!
and the elegant white ponies (maybe this is a unicorn!)
there were some perfect stones where I could sit and eat my cheese and pickle sandwiches!
A day of long shadows
Maybe a lunch time stopping place next time!
or at the aptly named ‘Double Waters’ where the Rivers Tavy and Walkham meet……………….
Across the old bridge…………….
And up another Devon county lane …..
I’m still fixated by trees! This time an English one!
And guess what else?
I fear I am repeating myself!
A perfect final resting point just 20minutes from home!
3 and a half hours and I was home to a well earned glass of wine and hot bath!
See you on my next ramble!
