The Devil's Punch Bowl

Hiking near Haslemere

The first genuinely nice day this year. ☀️ We took the train to Haslemere to do some hiking.

I re-read No One Writes to the Colonel by Gabriel García Márquez on the train. It was BRILLIANT 🚂

There is only one problem with it: It puts me off reading any other of García Márquez's books. There's no way he could have surpassed this one. In fact, I know HE didn't think he ever did.

Gibbet Hill On the main road between London & Portsmouth: where they used to hang the highwaymen

A cross has been erected when the locals complained that the hill was haunted...
