Trip Down Memory Lane

It was a beautiful day today and my itchy feet drew me out for a walk in the sun.  When in doubt I head for my favourite trig, West Down Beacon at Budleigh Salterton.  I really have no idea how many times I've been to this one but it holds many memories for me.  We're like old friends and if I'm ever feeling a bit low this is the place to go.  I'm sure a psychologist would make something of the fact that a lump of concrete is my haven.

My big plan for the next few years is to walk the South West Coast Path.  Today was a mini test run of my kit.  I even played with the timer on the camera.

Room for improvement I think!  I'm hoping I'm good to go next Saturday - will be weather dependent.  And if I do my first trig on the path will be Selworthy Beacon.  It's only a few 100ms off the route. I'm not going to walk miles out of my way to bag them whilst I walk it, but if a trig is in sniffing distance I'd be a fool to pass it by.
