Sunday the 20th May – Walk 20
Junction at Sandy Lochs to the pier at the Brig, North Collafirth.
I was hoping the weather would be like yesterday, despite being cold in the shade, warm in the bright May sunshine. Well it was dry today, but not a drop of sun until I finished – then it came out. Still, it wasn’t too windy, about a force 2 but really nippy.
I really enjoyed this walk, after a hectic week trying to finish off my research essay, teach and empty my front bedroom to make into a sitting room/studio, it was such a relief to get out in the fresh air. I always felt Ronas hill overshadowed Collafirth, but it didn’t feel like that at all today. It has been quite a while since I was last in Ollaberry, so there have been a few changes – such as the shop. It has either relocated or there is a new one.
I will have to take a better camera with me next time, although my little Lumix Panasonic has been a real little gem, it is not much cop for macro images. Still for a camera that pops in my pocket and is easy to operate, it will take some beating. Roll on next week!
