1Set off by walking past the Anchor Inn, near the beach, and up the hill past the allotments. What a place to garden!!! 5Look West, and then look behind you to the East. The panorama is breathtaking.67A first glimpse of the red cliffs of Devon.(more pictures in the slideshow)10Decide whether to walk the undercliff (too boggy at this time of year) or take the high ground to the old Coastguard’s lookout14 with a Buddha now keeping watch from the upper window – and here the Buddha’s view15 bviewand on across the top to Branscombe …….

Melissa and I started a Renga when I was in Devon and although we did not carry it on -( life sometimes takes over – and we do it for fun – no pressure) I wanted to record what we wrote, cos I like it as it is! And it refers to this very walk.

Melissa starts with her Haiku Challenge and we alternate the verses from there, if anyone else would like to pick this up and run with it you are very welcome:

On rare occasions                                                                                                                  I imbibe much and suffer                                                                                           Harsh headaches always

Away on a weekend break                                                                                          White wine for me, no headache

Sulphite free that wine                                                                                                  Must be, grapes sent from heaven                                                                                  To you in Devon

Walking on air along cliffs                                                                                           Clear head and cobalt sea drifts

Fresh air is the best                                                                                                  Remedy for my sore head                                                                                          Sleep? No! Walk instead

(addition in green! Melissa wrote the above next verse …. ah! now to see if the next couplet comes to me)

I love to include walks from other blogs here too, so we can all wander round the world together: this week join a delightful family walk with Alisa Burke, in Oregon, USA I would skip for joy if you put a link to your walk in the ‘Comments’, and if you don’t have blog, send me some pictures by email with a few words about your walk and they will appear in the next Wednesday Walk-Along. 😉

    • Yay! And HURRAY!!!! I am skipping for JOY! 😉 I popped on over to join you on your snowy walk – lovely, feel refreshed now! Just popping back with my link, so we can skip together. Wheeeeeeee!


  3. Sandra, I actually added another verse on this morning when I copied the whole thing to my post from the comments.
    You certainly had the weather for walking didn’t you? It actually snowed here, and lasted on the ground for most of the day, over the last two days. Painful hail storms in between so no walking for me in several days. I hope you are still having sunny days. 🙂 Melissa

    • Wonderful! I’ll go take a look – and add your verse. The day I went on that walk was absolutely glorious, none quite as good since – but no hail here, I guess you get the teeth of the weather and soften it up a bit for us, so by the time it gets here it is generally less fierce.
