Point reached on journey: We are climbing upwards through the Coomb heading for Helm's Deep.

Where I really went...

Just a local walk on Sunday and into town twice yesterday. However, I did also mow a patch of grass yesterday -- heavy going because it was nearly waist deep! Today I have thoroughly scrubbed and polished the car, applying a red colour restoring polish because parts of the car had turned a faded pink.

No serious photos today, I didn't take a camera with me on the walk on Sunday, but I took a couple of snaps with my phone.
