A beautiful February walk

For the first time in a very long time, I got out for a hike. And, completely by chance, we managed to choose the nicest day in February! Sunny, about 8degC and almost no breeze. Perfect.

I was slightly apprehensive as I haven't quite managed to keep active recently (a ballet lesson most weeks but that's about it), and we headed off on a bit of a trek. However, chatting took my mind off walking and we made fabulous progress.

The weather was so good that I ended up carrying all my "spares" (coat, fleece, body warmer, hat and gloves) in my rucksack. A bit tough on the shoulders!

The result - 2 1/2hrs of good, old fashioned hiking, a few hills and a couple of sore muscles the next day :)

Love your hike in the hills. Glad the day was so lovely and that you had a nice time... looks like great weather for a walk in the hills.

Are those ponies in your pics? They all seem to have white around the middle... perhaps they are cattle and my eyes are poor.
