Berra Tor in the rain

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!

Starting out, I assume they are pulling faces at the weather and not me!!

The tors of Dartmoor are that way, honest

Soaking wet

I think that is the River Walkham in the valley

And Doublewaters is that way

After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing we find Berra Tor

Along the lanes back to the car, we were all pretty wet by the time we got in the car, time to dry the seats out!
