Ten Tors season has begun. The first training walk is over and done, and hopefully I have managed to assist the new 35’s semi successfully with how to navigate
Cast your mind back to Saturday the 2nd November- it was rainy right? Like really rainy! I was so lucky that it didn’t rain at all on me on the hike on Sunday! It rained before and after- so lucky.
That said it was still a soggy walk. Especially because of my boots (which I haven’t been able to replace since the Dartmoor walk that I did a blog post about a few weeks ago https://abislifeinwriting.home.blog/2019/10/27/returning-to-dartmoor/ )
I stuck Gorilla tape on them but it didn’t last long! Look how wet the footpaths were! It was like walking up a river
We started at Burrington combe up to Beacon Batch and then down into cheddar gorge via velvet bottom and Jacobs ladder for some lunch
After lunch, much to our surprise, the sun stayed out and it remained a lovely day (thankfully the footpaths back weren’t as soggy as the ones to begin with. We walked back to Burrington combe from the other side of the gorge via tynnings farm.
It ended up being about a 15 mile walk on a beautiful day. I hope the rest of the walks are this lovely!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely week. I’ve been at home for a reading week so have spent A LOT of my time sat in front of my laptop writing away. For one of my assignments I’ve written a short story and was thinking about sharing it on here if any of you would be interested in seeing that?
