What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!
It’s late September and it has cooled down already: time to turn on the heating and bleed the radiators. Today, I caught sight of the Met Office’s long range forecast for the winter, which it defines as December through to February. Apparently, the outlook is that it will be drier and cooler than last year. That said, last winter was an exceptionally mild and wet affair so that isn’t likely to mean what it sounds. In any case, they are talking about drier milder than average weather. The same thinking seems to apply to their autumn forecast. Whatever happens, I hope that we’ll get some nice walking weather and that I’ll get a chance to get out there.
