A bit of a gap since the last walk with the boys due to my eldest getting a bout of Covid (or Rona as he calls it). He had very little in the way of symptoms and spent the 10 days off school mainly playing games and lording it up over his friends. The 11th day I had him out on Dartmoor. I thought I’d sweeten him a little by going to Widecombe and enjoying a lunch at the Cafe on the Green first, which was an inspired decision as we all enjoyed our toasted sandwiches and hot drinks, before heading out on to the cold moor. The walk was an easy one around Soussons Down, picking up paths that took us where we wanted to go before heading back through the forest to the car.
