Wednesday 6th June 2007

 

Having managed to both dislocate and fracture my little toe on Sunday a short and flat walk was called for to see how my toe would cope with walking boots. As forecast the cloud lifted around lunch-time so I had a pleasant afternoons stroll on Stanton Moor. The moor was particularly colourful but the haze meant that there really were no distant views at all.
