Well there was a bit of snow on Dartmoor, however with things to do on a Saturday morning it was mid afternoon before we got up to it. A lot had melted, some made into snowmen and enough thrown at me by my boys!!! It was a bit of fun, a short walk and a chance to see the quarry at Foggin Tor and some lovely views as the sun set. We need some more of the white stuff please Mr Weatherman!!!
