As you may have gathered by now, we Blondes have embarked on new employment options. Blonde Two is successfully writing and I am teaching in a new school. There are many implications alongside this statement: we don’t see each other as often as we did when we worked in the same school, we are much happier with our new employment despite not seeing each other so often, and lastly we are both a bit freer in the evenings for a bit of Dartmoor walking.

Recently we tested this third implication thoroughly as we got ourselves up onto the moors for a little bimble. The light spring evening contributed to the most definite spring in our step, and we decided that the planned bimble could be extended to a walk. We had a fantastic walk which included several tors, a visit to the Dartmoor Christmas Tree, a coffee stop, some beautiful birdsong and several stops to play with the camera. It was so lovely to Get Outside on a school night that we didn’t really want it to end. However the call of the Jail Ale and Fish Pie eventually became too loud to resist and we retreated to Widecombe in the Moor’s Old Inn for our supper.

So we have discovered that even ‘on a school night’ we can easily Get Outside for a dose of Dartmoor.
