We’ve had a bit of a grotty start to the late spring/summer time down here in the south west. After a pretty dry May, June started with very heavy rain and strong winds. This weekend was no different, especially the Saturday. We needed a walk and the weatherman promised drier weather to the south west of Dartmoor at least until 1pm. Well that didn’t happen and as a result we got soaked. No whinging from the boys, they just got on with it. I can imagine that this is a good spot on a dry, sunny day. Easy for families to walk and enjoy the area, For us it was low cloud, no views and sideways rain!!! C’est la vie!
