Exmoor in the southwest of England has public footpaths and bridleways across a variety of landscapes. We spent a week in a house in Wootton Courtenay and hiked every day. Here are some pictures of the scenery from those walks. These places and animals might inspire scenes in my stories.
View from Dunkery Beacon. You can see the North Atlantic Ocean with the coast of Wales in the distance. Dunkery Beacon is the highest peak in Exmoor.
A walk through the woods after climbing Dunkery Beacon.
Sailboats moored at Porlock Weir at low tide:
Porlock Weir – memento of WWII. Soldiers used these pillboxes to watch for enemy ships.
Porlock Marsh. We saw two egrets in the distance.
View of the Sea from the Valley of the Rocks. A magnificent view near the coastal footpath.
Goats in the Valley of the Rocks. These goats seemed to be posing for the visitors.
