Yesterday was a perfect Summer day for plein air painting. Taking the opportunity, since the forecasters reckon it will rain later this week, I decided to go back to Arlington Court. I love my Volunteering, what a great way of being there for visitors, we chat, laugh and I get the chance to inform them about Arlington. It's a Win Win for everyone. Plus the painting went well (between talking) and I still have it In-progress for the next visit. Fingers crossed the weather will be good on that occasion, I need the light right.

We had intended to drive down to Hunter's Inn the other day,
but when we got as far as Trentishoe
we were faced with
a sign to say Road Closed
Thinking 'outside the box' we turned at the junction on the left and followed the road up there, intending to outwit the system and turn right at the top of the hill, then make our way back down to Hunter's Inn.....but no, there was Another sign to say Road Closed. Seemed like they didn't want anyone visiting Hunter's Inn, so we opted to stop at
Holdstone Down instead.
Nobody else about when we arrived, and being able to park easily in this pull-in and walk up the hill to the Triangulation Station at the top - well worth the walk for the view
and William had a good time too.
