More From Dartmoor

The other day I gave you a little teaser when I talked about our big walk around Dartmoor.  So I took a break from sewing to pop a few pictures up today. I’ve been asked to post some pictures of my repurposing projects and I’m making good progress so look for a few photos towards the end of the week. Back to Dartmoor...

We passed a fair number of cyclists that day. Ray and Mij said they’d never seen so many on the path there before.

I love the lone tree in the curve of the tor. ( Tor – large hills with outcrops of bedrock)

Pausing for me to catch up…I always lag behind taking pictures.

  1. Beautiful photos. They bring back memories of childhood weekend walks through similar Irish countryside. A very different scenery than the aussie landscape we explore with our kids here in Australia!

  2. oh these are so gorgeous. there’s such beauty at every turn it seems. is it cold there now?
    haha – taking photos is a great excuse to catch your breath isn’t it? of course with all the hiking you do, i’m sure you are in prime shape. : )
