Northern Star

Standard

I hit the North Downs Way this time, just for a couple of hour’s hiking, after 50 minutes on the train next to a really annoying couple having a continual and high-volume Almost-Argument.

The weather today was supposedly going to be cloudy but dry (it rained, heavily, thank the Grods for cheap pac-a-macs in a bag). Also we are allegedly going to be hit by a major storm on Monday http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24674537 – one to match the 1987 gale that blew over around 15 million trees.

Judging by the howling wind outside, BigStorm2013 is moving way ahead of schedule. As such I offer up these photos from the hike, including shots of trees, on the basis that in 48 hours those trees may no longer exist……

Road up a gigantic bloody hill. Which is regrettably part of the North Downs Way. So therefore gigantic bloody hill must be walked up.
