Once again back in Snowdonia, this time with a group of friends so we had two cars. This gave us an excellent chance to do a linear walk (with a little scrambling!), so we started from Bethesda to walk back to our bunkhouse in Capel Curig.

West Bay to Lyme Regis Coastpath walk
When we lived in Exeter, we visited this coast many times
Sunday 9 October 2016
I didn't take as many photos as last year, as the light and weather wasn't as good, but I enjoyed walking the local paths with others for the Dursley Walking Festival.
Sunday 2 October 2016
The Black Mountains around the Vale of Ewyas and Llanthony has been one of my favourite places to walk for several years now
Saturday 24 September 2016
The Cotswold way passes near our house in Dursley, but today we went further north to walk the path near Stanton and Broadway
Saturday 6 August 2016
This is well known ground for me, as I grew up around here
Sunday 31 July 2016
We did a really long walk from our house in Dursley, about 28km (17.5 miles) with nearly 1000m (3300 feet) of climbing.
Monday 18 July 2016
Our summer visit to family in Sicily, which was baking under the intense summer sun
Saturday 2 July 2016
The Lantern Way is a 14 mile circular walk around Dursley, launched in 2015 by Dursley Welcome Walkers.
Saturday 25 June 2016
It's always good to see Dursley Festival, with the town full of smiling people and activities
Saturday 21 May 2016
Sadly we needed to go to a family funeral in Switzerland, where some of my wife's family lives
Saturday 30 April 2016
We return for a walk in the Black Mountains, with a new variation on a couple of old favourite routes: firstly up Tal Trwynau, continuing over Mynydd Llysiau
Friday 29 April 2016
As with last year and the year before, I've collected my bluebell photos into one blog post. I love seeing how the woods develop over this short time, with the leaves coming out on the trees over a carpet of bluebells.
Thursday 21 April 2016
A good crowd came out to see the magnificent beacon fire on Uley Bury, to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday
Sunday 10 April 2016
I grew up on Exmoor so know parts of it very well
Monday 28 March 2016
Another sunny spring day, although not quite as warm as Good Friday, so we walked over to Uley.
Friday 25 March 2016
A beautiful warm spring day - so there was a good turnout of people to follow the cross from the centre of Dursley to the top of Cam Peak
Friday 11 March 2016
Some of my photos from last time we last saw the Severn Bore were recently published in Paddle Surf magazine. This time we went back to Arlingham to watch the bore, near the Old Passage Inn.
Saturday 27 February 2016
I've been fortunate to have been walking all over the world in the last couple of months - New Zealand, Hong Kong and Snowdonia. I'd not done a proper walk locally for far too long.
Saturday 13 February 2016
The mountain tops of Snowdonia were properly wintry
Sunday 17 January 2016
Just back from New Zealand, we weren't suffering from jet lag but season lag - suddenly changing from summer to winter.
Friday 8 January 2016
We had a one night stopover in Hong Kong on the way home from New Zealand. I loved the contrast of the busy, sometimes quite gritty street level and the vast vertical skyscrapers.
Thursday 7 January 2016
We just visited New Zealand for the first time, exploring by car and on foot. It's a very easy place to love, with stunning scenery that's so accessible, at least once we'd made the long journey south.
Monday 14 December 2015
On the way over to New Zealand, we stopped in Tokyo for a couple of nights.
Thursday 5 November 2015
I've been going to the Ottery Tar Barrels for well over ten years
