This walk was much needed, the boys had been staring at phones, games and screens for long enough and they needed to get out and see the world. I decided to head to the far side of Dartmoor from home to extend the time away from the computers, whilst also allowing us to finishing listening to the football match. The boys hadn’t been to any of these tors that I could remember so this was a good spot and Grimspound is always good for a bit of a history lesson. It was a good leg stretch and pretty warm when comparing to last week when I thought autumn was on its way. Looks like I was wrong on that front!
