On this walk we took a path to the left of Mount Brandon, a different side of the mountain from that my previous post. We had intended to go up Brandon but due to low cloud and skeins of foggy patches coming from the sea we thought it safer to not go to the top of the mountain. I was secretly glad of this, to be honest, because I didn’t feel fit enough for the more challenging walk we might have taken.
The landmarks remained the same for much of the walk, but the clouds changed all the time.
This is how Brandon appeared as clouds rolled by.
My guess at this story is that the farmer left this old vehicle here to use as storage for his fencing materials, and it was first vandalised by human eejits, and later attacked by multiple storms.
These two photos were taken in the same minute, and look how quickly the picture can change in this kind of weather.
We accidentally deviated from our path and arrived at this cliff edge, and sat for our picnic on the grassy slopes below, where I picked up a few sheep ticks – again! There is Lyme disease here, but one can stay at home and be safe, or go out and take chances. At least you can’t pass Lyme disease on to anyone else, unlike Covid-19.
So, back down on low ground, and even on the correct route, just signposted with no obvious path.
A lovely walk with great views, and the foggy clouds even added to the beauty of the scenes. I hope you enjoyed the images.
