On my own
|Comments:||The forecast of early light rain clearing by lunch time was a little inaccurate as the drizzle continued well into the afternoon. However, it did give me the opportunity to test out the water resistance of a recently purchased pair of trousers, which passed with flying colours. The grassy terrain made for easy walking but, as will be seen from the photos, there was little to be seen on the way apart from mist!!|
