Notwithstanding, I’d been debating with myself for weeks whether to go on the solstice walk from Park Bridge up to Hartshead Pike after the not so great weather conditions last year.
But the sun actually shone yesterday and the evening was pleasant, so we took the risk and off we went.
It isn’t a particularly long walk – about four and a half miles – but it goes over some rough tracks and boggy ground on the way out and there are quite a few hills to climb.
It was warm work getting to the top, but as if on cue, it clouded over and the wind got up so the morris dancers ended up keeping their coats on while they strutted their stuff.
We certainly got our fair share of fresh air and there are more photos on my Flickr page.
