Sunday 5th January 2014- Englishcombe
Me, Paddy Garcia, Kate-Force-One, Magic Dave, Mr P and Madame Citron
Not so much a walk as a brief outdoor prelude to Sunday lunch, but the first stroll of the year undaunted by the terrible weather.
We met at the church in Englishcombe, enjoyed the view of the Wansdyke and the extremely friendly churchgoers, then wandered a quick route (maybe 2 or 3 miles) around Englishcombe via Breach (Beech?) Woods. Me suffering from near-total loss of map-reading skills, Paddy Garcia had to take over. Constant rain and not enough pairs of waterproof trousers between us.
Decamped to The George at Norton St Philip for warm fire and Sunday lunch. Despite extremely muddy state, managed American Hustle at the cinema on the way home. Despite the extreme wetness, a grand opening foray into 2014.
