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!

I’m entering this photo in Cee’s ‘Which Way’ Wednesday Challenge.

It was taken last year on a gloriously wonderful visit to Bateman’s, the home of the author of the Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling.

If anyone asked me what or where they should visit if they only had a limited amount of time and wanted to soak up English heritage, Bateman’s would be at the very top of the list.

It is the singularly most peaceful and beautiful home I have ever visited. A delight and a joy.

The picture above is only the tiniest glimpse.

I’d love you to leave a link to one of your walks, could be recent or archive, it would be great to be able to walk-along with you.
