Where I really went...

We crossed a small stream that flowed west south into a swampy area. :)

We also did a lot of scrambling and floundering over boulders and heather-clad, almost-vertical hillsides. We studied rocks and found a hairy caterpillar.

And it drizzled steadily all day, thus ensuring that we came back thoroughly soaked. The long hot shower afterwards was blissful. I am still loving our new bathroom.

Of course today is glorious, so I will go out in about an hour or so for a walk and to take sunny pictures.

In other news, I now have my leaving date and a nicely substantial cheque. I will finish on 24 October at half-term, which is as reasonable a point as any to hand my one class over to another tutor. Quite who that will be I don't know yet, but that's not my worry any more.
