So I’ve made it to 250 miles, but The Graph tells me there’s no room for slacking, and on Monday night I did another long walk with Stuart around West Linton. We went south this time on an 11.5 mile round trip to the unusual and picturesque hamlet of Garvald. Loads of history in this area: a fair part of the walk used one of the key Roman Roads between Scotland and England, we also passed a couple of 4,000 year old cairns.
The trip was also remarkable in that I had an opportunity to save a sheep which had somehow got its head stuck in some solid wooden fencing. I’m a big fan of My Name is Earl, so hoping this turn of events will bring me some good karma…
The walled garden near Garvald. Love the colours in this picture.
A few people have asked about the photos on the website. Apart from my weekend up north (when I used a Canon Powershot A520), all the photos are taken with a Sony Ericsson (K750) camera phone. Really good quality for a camera, but no timer, hence the close-ups!
Also, I’ve been asked about posting comments on the site. Unfortunately, despite trying a few different things, I’ve concluded that it’s not possible to comment on the website without setting up your own. I know this is a real pain and very offputting! I’ve had a lot of feedback from people reading the site anyway – it’s good to know it’s causing a fair bit of interest.
