Tuesday 16 August

An overcast and wet day, but as I type this (just after 6pm), there is some brightness coming in from the west. In between spells of rain, the midges are having a field day. I've been cleaning up pictures, maps and descriptions on one of my Walking world walks, which has been languishing in the doldrums for more than three years. I originally walked it in April 2008, but it was filed in a bottom drawer following my mother's death the next month. I found it needed more pictures and waymarkers, so I have advised the Walkingworld's admins of my amendments and they will do their best to incorporate it. The walk is around the Arnish Peninsula - a mile away across the water, but a full 5 miles by road. I'll post some pictures to give you an idea of the area. There have been alterations since April 2008, but the outlying areas have not been changed.
