A friend showed me this walk last year. It involves walking through fiields and then some circuitous uphill paths through King's Wood. At the top you can see almost to Hereford. My family were reasonably hopeful I'd remember the way though I sensed doubt. Hmm.
Well the first part seems easy enough.
King's wood is directly ahead
I take one last look back before entering.
So far, so good. I sense renewed confidence in my sense of direction.
Hansel and Gretal laid a trail of crumbs. I think the iPone is almost as good
Take a good look. We have to come back this way
Yes. Okay. I'll recognise this again
The summit is almost there, but I'm worried. There were many cross-paths and turn-offs on the way up.
To complicate things, we'll be approaching them from a different direction on a circular route down.
And here we are. I've got us here. Now to find the way back. Our house is a speck just out of picture far right.
Morale is falling. Doubt sets in. My daughter takes a rest while I ponder.
Leadership is called for. Confidence must be restored!
Eureka. I recognise this field. I check my iPhone behind a tree
Definitely the one...I think...
And damn-it I'm relieved.
* Interesting rehearsal out-take when the two were barely speaking. This is a more polished version from the film 'Let it Be' . More polished, less chemistry. I'm rambling, much like the walk through King's Wood.
