Just back after a few days on Dartmoor. Here's Clare admiring one of the more unusual signs we saw on a farmer's gate.

Today we did a couple of tors (Hay Tor and Hound Tor) although neither is particularly high nor more than half a mile from the car park. Beyond Hound Tor we encountered the remains of a mediaeval village, barely visible in the middle distance of this shot.

Finally, a picture of the author auditioning for a role in the forthcoming production of The Hobbit. Perhaps a minor warrior?

It rained mostly continuously, and when rain ceased the mist came down. Still, the hotel was comfortable and had WiFi, and the meals were excellent. And the moors give value-for-effort even in the absence of sun.
