Still Walking Despite the Water Underfoot
The T&D short walk options on 9th December were much affected by the recent rainfall.
The original walk along the River Exe was badly affected by flooding and the second option at Dawlish Warren was restricted by storm damage and flooding. Thus, Clair, our recently appointed Chair and leader of this walk, devised a walk of nearly 6 miles that started at Sandy Lane, Dawlish. The route took us north through the new housing estates before skirting Langdon Hospital and then through the country park to Dawlish Warren and back via the sea wall. Despite an omnipresent rainbow, we had no rain and a good walk. Thank you Claire.
Meanwhile, blustery winds and light rain did not spoil the longer 8 mile walk on Dartmoor. From Manaton to Bowerman’s nose, Houndtor Down and Becky Falls. Thank you Mary for leading that one.
