Peebles – Moffat: Earwiggo

It has been a busy week. 

A South West Coast Path summary will follow in October, but in the meantime feel free to peruse a slide show.  The short one is here, but if you are called Andrew, or have more time, you may choose this one.

Suicide pact in South Devon?

A report on the walk that Sue and I enjoyed around Woolston on 18 September will have to wait, or forever be forgotten.

Here’s part of the reason for the busy week – repatriation of a container load (we filled the ‘van’) of possessions after around eight years – it’s like a treasure trove – but where to put them all.

The containerat the back of the 'van' is a similar size to the 'box' on the 'van'

The evening walks have now become ‘night’ walks, although we were blessed with a full moon during our short perambulation around Little Budworth on 23 September.

On Saturday morning (later today) a trip to Moffat/Peebles will be undertaken, and during the next six days a 130 km circular route will be attempted.  Some friends failed last time.  One of them is a fellow blogger.  ‘Earwiggo Again’ he reports, having scoured the land for reinforcements for this second attempt.  Curious as to what happened last time?  It’s described here.  And the picture below (courtesy of the Pie Man) provides a clue as to the reason for failure.
