Trialing in the mud of the Forest of Dean

Today has been a beautiful day. The sun has been shining and the air has been warm. Perfect for a day spent in the Forest of Dean, in an open top trials car competing in the annual Kyrle Classic Car Trial.

This link is to the playlist of 6 videos from the day. 4 taken from inside the car, 1 video of Adrian Dommett in his Wolseley Hornet, and another of a chap in a Mk1 Ford Escort.

Today has been a good day.

Easter Sunday amongst the Daff’s at Steps Bridge pt2 of 2

A lovely Easter Sunday walk amongst the Daffodils at Step’s Bridge on Dartmoor.

Every year the Devon Trust Nature Reserve is a picture as the miniature wild Daffodils blossom into a sea of yellow. Timing it so that I catch them at their best is always a challenge but this year I got it spot on. Especially as the sun shone too, always a bonus.

Just a short 2 Mile walk through the reserve and back again beside the River Teign is never a disappointment.
