I have set myself a few targets for 2017:
17 – walks longer than an hour
3 in January
2 in February
On the 5th.Feb I went for a foggy walk with a friend near Hardy’s Monument.
We came across the remains of a burnt out car
Now that might not look very enticing to you – but since making art out of Beach Clean finds, a pile of charred and rusty trash is like treasure to me. Luckily my friend knows me well enough and was happy to help me gather bits from the ashes and put them in the boot of her car to take home.

On the 12th Feb my daughter, her friend and their children joined me on a trip to Lewesdon Hill where we hunted for a Geocache box (and found it!). We all went back to Washingpool, the best Farm Shop in Dorset, if not the world! for a delicious Sunday roast.
Washingpool was used as a location in the current TV drama ‘Broadchurch’.
