Outdoor Daily

Back on Dartmoor!

The expanse of valleys and tors, a distant glimmer of the sea.

What a treat!

An ancient stand of oak amidst boulders, moss and lichen.

The call of a cockoo.

Swathes, no, ‘fields’ of cotton grass like I’ve never seen before.

A sheep-free zone and freedom for my dog.

Crossing a water course, getting soaked knee-deep.

A good workout climbing out of the valley.

Buffeted by a sharp wind on top of tors. Time to put on a woolly hat!

Skylarks.

Evocative names on the map: Devil’s Tor, Foxholes, Tinner’s Hut, Beardown Tor, Crow Tor…

Torrents cascading over large rocks in a beechwood valley.

Uplifting. Restorative. Magic.
