145/366 Walking

Enjoyed the walk again this morning. I arrived home a few minutes later than I usually do, but I’ve worked it out. Next time I go for a walk during the day, I must take some food for the squirrels at the back of Trinity Church.

Usually, in each of the magazines I subscribe to there will be an article that drives me to write a comment here. This month’s issue of Country Walking though, is not bland, as I have enjoyed reading it. There was one article about the Pennine Way that did pique my interest. To me it highlighted that there are many places in the UK that are there to be explored.

The closest I have been to the Peak District is a working visit to Derby, that lasted all of two hours. I certainly wouldn’t be able to do the 260 odd miles of the Pennine Way, but there are parts of it, such as the High Cup Canyon. I was thinking about it today, and the best I can compare it with is when we went on one of the Levada walks in Madeira, I think it was the walk of the 25 fountains. It started at the head of an enormous canyon on the north side of the island. The walk stuck in my mind because it was a superb demonstration of the differences of the north and south sides of the island.

The north side is wet and cold, and very, very green. Towards the end of the walk, we went through tunnel, drilled to convey water from the north to south side. At about 800m long, it was cold and damp. But, when we emerged on to the south side, we were back in to the hot, dry sunshine. A most memorable event.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
