Just to proved that Somerset can be as idyllic as some other places recently visited, here’s a couple of snaps from the last week. Mind you, it’s blowing a houlli at the moment. This month turns out to be a record breaker for steps taken. I’ll share the details tomorrow once the month is over. It’s gonna make April tough.
Travels are over again for a short period, and we are back in Somerset until the New Year, except for a week over Christmas when we’ll be house sitting. Our regular spot at Helwell Bay is not available as they are closed for the winter, so we are a couple of miles up the cost at Donniford, which does hair… Read more »

And what a fitting way of saying goodbye to Wivey but to take the opportunity to view it from every angle. We were blessed with great weather, not too hot, and as luck would have it, our fellow walkers homes were alongside the route so suitable pitstops were easily at hand.
