After one of the warmest Marches in recent history it's salutary to look back to March 1891 when there was snow for almost the whole month - still 2-3 ft left on 29th March along Shepherds Lane (between Teignmouth and Bishops). Global warming or just normal climate fluctuation?
No sign of Earth Hour in Dawlish so sorry Dawlish but went to TAAG centre in Teignmouth instead. Yes a little tokensim I agree but a little red wine and a fine blues band by lantern light made for a great evening.

Hi again. Well it's over and that's my charity walking done for the year.

Morning everyone! Only 6 days to go and counting. Last training walk today so you may catch a glimpse of me this morning walking through Dawlish to the Waren before heading inland up to top of Haldon. If there's anyone in the Dawlish cloud who'd still like to sponsor me you can by going to www.justgiving.com/neil-howell1 . Cheers
