A weekend spent delivering a Beginners Navigation course. Wanders around the late Summer purples of the heather on Win Hill on Saturday, and then Cave Dale and the ‘Great Ridge’ on Sunday. A lovely 2 days with clients that were keen to learn and participated fully in the navigation.
On a personal level, and perhaps beyond the subject of this blog, the weekend provided distraction from the events in Afghanistan. A Nation of Afghans have been sold to the wolves, and a generation of British servicemen and servicewomen have been left wondering what they fought for, and what many of our British and Afghan friends and colleagues gave their all for. For as long as i can remember i have sought solace in the hills, and this weekend their distraction was much appreciated.
