Map reader who got lost!
view over one of the fields, just after the phesant ran past!
Well, Colly and I decided that we had had quite enough of London and the stench of city streets, sewers and the Tube.
So, headed for Reading with the intent of getting a bit of fresh air.
Slept the night at Coly (she snores worse than I do!) and headed for the hills the next morning sort of early.
Found our B&B easy enough - tucked away in the back streets of Hungersford, after wending our way thru the village.
People pleasant, the chap of the house a hiker of note and full of maps and information.
We borrowed a map, got lost, saw lots, and could not identify the beautiful yellow flowering crop! But - it tastes like young broccolai if that helps!
What a giggle - we walked up an down dale, got a blister and a few, discovered muscles we did not know we had, a few cow barn's, a phesant on the run, tinkled in the woods with fear we would be spotted on a public walkway, and had a spot of beer in the local before trudging out way back.
What a wonderful weekend away!!!
Oh yea, it was freaking cold
Fields if yellow
Mustard, Rape or flowering broccolai?
too - take note of the serious jumpers!
