Despite the rest of the country basking in the sun, we were deprived of what I am sure would be stunning scenery, having to make do with hill fog! Not that I'm complaining, I quite enjoy the atmosphere of a mist bound hill!
The western peaks are well worth a visit! Two summits at a respectable height of 559m (Shining Tor) and 506m (Shutlingsloe) made it a good workout, and I managed to navigate us around without any misplacement!
Back to the camping barn, a quick change and hasty retreat to the pub to ponder the thought of a night sleeping on a bed of straw in a building, we were later to find out in the pub, was nicknamed "The Fridge"!
