Back to nature on the Somerset Levels

We never tire of walking in these ancient places. Due to the lockdown we had not been for some months so on this lovely day, off we went. We set our GPS to the Sweet’s Tearooms beloved of cyclists. Evidently, sitting inside is banned until late March but the staff did a good job offering a takeaway service. However the lines were too slow moving so off we went.

Come with us on this pictorial guide.

This used to be a railway line to Glastonbury and from thence to Bournemouth. Day return in 1962 1 shilling 10 p

On the way I met a young lady who showed us her bag made of hemp. I found myself congratulating and respecting her for ‘having got this far against so many challenges’. I have no idea why I said it.  When I become impressed by something I have to share it.  What is to be lost. If she thinks I am mad then never mind.  I have to say that she said she ‘felt emotional’ when I spoke so I hope something was triggered. I shall never know.
