The Tor

Glastonbury Tor

‘We will walk 500 miles’

Today Little Miss M and I reached 60.8 miles of our 500 mile goal.

We walked up Glastonbury Tor – can you see that pink speck nearly at the top? That is Little Miss M (6) racing ahead to get there first.

What a glorious day it was with magnificent views

so good to stand together when I finally got there!

We were with my daughter, Miss E and Master R. The children were touchingly concerned about the modern carvings, but enjoyed the “love heart” as it had not damaged the stone

Having enjoyed the Spring sunshine, the breeze and the views it was time to go back down

On the 85 minute journey home, Miss E (11) was a bit bored and invented Car Yoga to keep herself and the rest of us amused – with demonstrations of the Eyebrow Pose, the Upward Dog and the Squash-the-Person-Next-To-You Pose – Happy Days!

  4. Such a long time since I last went up Glastonbury tor. Is there a path up and down now? I remember slithering down on my bottom part of the way down!

  8. Absolutely fantastic photos. What a great idea to walk 500 miles with your grandchildren. They will remember these adventures with huge fondness as adults I am sure but with the added bonus of these photos to help fully remind them.

    • Thank you! It was Little Miss M’s request to me that we walk 500 miles together after hearing the Proclaimers’ song – She was 4 at the time, with no real idea of how far that would be or how long it might take us, but who could resist such a sweet request!
      I’m so glad to be able to keep a record of our walks in this way – it is a fun way to include others in our adventures. πŸ™‚

  15. You could probably just see my brother’s house from there… He lives in Croscombe, just outside Wells, and can see the Tor from his living room window. Much nicer weather than the last lot of photos he sent me, where there 6 inches of snow on top of the gate posts.
