It was a dull, grey overcast day on Sunday, but I was determined to get out and stop SAD (seasonally affected disorder) setting in! So out came the OS map and off I went with a small rucksack, camera, bottle of water and a small(ish) bag of M&M’s.
I’m reading a book at the moment called The Wild Places by Robert Macfarlane. It’s a beautifully written book about wild places in the UK, and it got me thinking about what I consider to be “my” favourite wild places. Anyway, one thing led to another and before I knew it I was standing alone in the middle of Arne, on the first day of 2008, watching the sun slowly set behind the hills.
