Out on my daily walk with the dogs in July, I parked on Candra and walked over Alex Tor. As I descended towards Camperdown I noticed a group of Land Rovers parked haphazardly in a field below, sheep were congregated all around. At first I thought they were dipping, but soon realised they had set up a shearing pen. As we drew closer I snapped the sheep, before they were sheared, getting a hair cut and most importantly their after shots. A lovely scene – I got a thumbs up from the shearers for taking photos.
With a smile I continued our walk towards Brown Willy farm, with Brown Willy in the foreground to my left and Rough Tor to my right a beautiful landscape to be surrounded by.
I then veered to the right and we made our way back to the car over King Arthur’s downs and lastly through Middle Candra. A dark cloud edged with blue sky in every direction, dispensed several spots of rain and followed us all the way around, but we didn’t mind. The dogs were in their element with their balls being thrown in various directions throughout the walk. I must be mad but I love it as much as they do. I can’t wait for the next one.
It took us just under 2 hours to walk but bare in mind I was walking throwing and picking up balls!
Enjoy your walks and go explore!
