Darkest, bleakest Dartmoor
Out on Harford Moor, it was murky in the extreme. The light came and went, as did the fog and mist. The wind howled around us constantly, and the rain was horizontal. I had my swimming things with me as I hoped to investigate various bits of blue on the map - all of which turned out to be either bogs or puddles. The one decent bit of water was a pretty little reservoir surrounded by trees with lots of 'keep out' signs. We really had to battle against the elements, and concentrate all the time to stop getting lost. It's a bleak world out there sometimes. A short video conveys a little of what it was like. you can view it here.
