With thanks to fellow outdoor blogger Emily Woodhouse, this is my first response to what will be a series of daily prompts for this week. Not being able to get out or travel far often can leave bloggers with a lack of impetus to write. You can follow Emily’s work at Travelling Lines.
Embracing the Summer Solstice, on the 21st of June this year. Outdoors, of course! What did you get up to?
Wednesday 21st June 2017
Each year, the longest day comes and goes. It’s rare that I ever do anything to celebrate or embrace the occasion. In fact, I think I’ve put more effort in to experiencing the shortest day, every twelve months.
But this year, I wanted it to be different. I wanted to do something. Naturally, walking came to mind; being outdoors. With work to continue the next morning, I didn’t driving far and so travelled up Burrington Combe to begin a brief expedition on to my local Mendip Hills.
