At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Looking back at the road crossing from the mainland and the start of Chesil beach.

Here some Scandinavian student types were carving sculptures in the Portland stone

ha - they're all in France - Pyrenees in particular, it seemed - and Perigord.
tricks of camping - easily forgotten - the first is to remember where one stored one's tent - had to buy a new one - 50gbp, room for four to sleep, canopy to eat under (contre-soleil) and high enough for a 1.85M person to stand upright under - and only 6kg - perfect for a mule, hard for a solo trek, I think, but it solves the dawn wriggle problem painlessly.
Looks like good walking but it's those vertical drops I can't stand.

Gimmer - I think you're going soft, but at our age we're entitled. Getting in and out of my little Terra Nova is like extreme pot holing in the old days.
