A Walk on the Wild Side

Took a nice long walk deep into the forest along a footpath that meanders its way towards Kielder. Its well away from the regular tourist spots. It was so quiet I began to wonder if my hearing aids had packed in! I did a few drawings and took a lot of b&w photos. the weather was showery making it perfect conditions for the midges. But I went onwards, undaunted.
It really is great being out and alone in the wild places knowing your fieldcraft is essential and to enjoy using it.
Got back rather footsore about half an hour before I was due to open the Hostel. We're half full tonight, Mainly Pennine Way walkers.
