We met at the car park near Pym’s Chair on a very cold morning
So who was Pym? This might help.
We set off down the road – I wasn’t sure that losing all this height was such a good idea!
At the bottom of the hill we took a left turn along a track
We rounded a partially derelict farmhouse
This car seemed to have been parked up for some time!
The views were stunning
but there were only the sheep to share them with
and there were lots of them about
But there must be frogs about as well – and these had not gone unnoticed – were those Canada Geese tracks to the right. Do they feed on the spawn or do you think they just took a drink?
We took our break where a house once stood – and wondered who once lived here.
and envied them their view from their front door
Then onward and upwards as we regained all that height we had previously lost, and a bit more – in one short stretch
until we reached Shining Tor
with its splendid path along its ridge.
We took in views
in every direction
as we enjoyably sauntered along the gradual descent back to the car park.
