It was just fine… till I looked at the Forecast

Allestree Lake, Derby

The morning started so well.  Sunshine and fluffy clouds on a blue background.  Early as it was the morning was heating up, promising a day that was much more summer like than many we have enjoyed this week.  Indeed as the day progressed the thermometer read 26c….

Then I had got sight of the weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow.  More wet weather and wind coming in from the west.   Maybe,  sometime soon, we will get to enjoy some consistently good summer weather.  Best make the most of today…

A Little Gem on Exmoor……

Horner-Water

Horner Water flowing through the valley of Horner Woods.    The hamlet of Horner, a great starting point to explore the valley, can be found near to West Luccombe which lies on the eastern edge of the Exmoor National Park.   Exmoor is, part in Devon and part, as is the case with Horner, in Somerset.  These quiet high wooded valleys are wonderful to tramp, paths weaving there way  through the woods, sometimes following old packhorse trails, with some leading you on and out onto the high open moors of Exmoor…. and maybe a coastal view.

Looking forward to exploring again…..   but till then….
