If you are a regular reader or have spotted the menu bar at the top of this blog you will know that we are keen geocachers. We love nothing more than spending a few hours hunting through the briar and bramble for tiny pots, hidden by equally enthusiastic hiders. As weird as that sounds it really isn't that odd.
Millions of tiny diamonds spread out across the grassy fields of the Ouse Valley this morning, Jack frost had been busy with his frozen paint brush overnight, and had transformed the landscape from lush greens, and vivid browns of autumn, into one of frozen spikes, and soft pastels. The encrusted blades of grass crackled as I crossed the sheep fields below the old church as the sun began to spread her warming rays over the freezing morning.
I’m sure many of you here, reading this, will have read my previous review of my Berghaus coat (it is by far my biggest “hit” on google), well recently I was contacted by the great people at Blacks.co.uk to offer me the opportunity to review another, this time the Berghaus Torridon reversible down jacket. If you’ve read my older review you’ll know I liked that coat so I’d have been a fool to say no.
For the last two days the rains have fallen from the heavens in near biblical proportions, breaks in the downpour have been few and far between as weeks worth of rain has splashed down across much of the UK but especially my home town of Milton Keynes. Today, the weather has brightened somewhat and the skies have, if not cleared, lightened. Today, after the rains, I ventured out onto the patch for the first walk in over a week, since my Stonechat encounter.
As I hopped off the No.8 bus the thick layer of white clouds parted to reveal the golden orb of the sun, a good omen I thought, as I began to walk the short path from bus stop to lake edge. By the time i reached the lapping waters the hole had closed once more and grey clouds once more covered the sky, this was a pattern that would be repeated through my walk, patches of brilliant sunshine amongst a dark overcast day.

"Kids don't remember their best day of watching television! "
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
― George Gordon Byron
