DSC_0004, originally uploaded by michael_jecks.

Out for a walk this morning, and the weather was cool and crisp, but dry. So the camera came too. While the lower levels round our way are almost free of snow and ice, it was amazing to see what a few feet in height could do. Cawsand was covered in a thin layer, as you can see.

Looking forward to a day’s walk next Monday with the Rector of Crediton. Haven’t had a walk with Nigel for a long time, so looking forward to that!

Busy times

Brewing a cup of tea by the River Taw. Thank God for Bushbuddy cook stoves!

No, not terribly busy, but there’s a bit going on. Compiling an anthology of short stories, preparing for a longish walk, setting out the synopses for the next two books, and then talks and other projects come into play.

I’ve been very remiss on these pages recently, mostly because I’ve not found time to work on these pages as often as I’d like. However, from this year I have decided to have this as a dedicated photoblog with all those pictures that aren’t suitable anywhere else! That being so, here’s a pic of my difficult life now. Lighting a fire with firestick and steel isn’t as easy as it might seem!
