Tuesday 13th February 2007

 

The first dry day since the heavy snow and rain of the past week meant that despite the lack of sun I had to get out of the house for a short walk. Last time I was at Harboro Rocks I didn't spot the cave until I was at home looking at the pictures I had taken, so today I made finding it my main aim.
