Jen and I have continued to take our regular half-hour walks around the lanes the last couple of weeks. The early winter weather has been changeable to say the least. In the space of a few days, we saw thick fog, bright sunshine, and heavy early snow.

The weather today might most kindly be described as indescribable: thick hill-fog incorporating heavy rain. We decided to forego our walk, and I went to buy a Christmas tree. Now all we have to do is decorate the damn thing!

On the Moor

There’s barely a page without a surprising fact…whether it’s about a vacuum flask, a hawk or a bilberry. […] Begin the book as you would a moorland walk, happy to put the route map away and just follow where the sheep trods take you—then you’ll likely find the surprising turns and unexpected views a suitable reward.
Nick Small, Caught by the River
