Walking in the park

Wednesday 13 May 2009

I am staying at a very nice B&B in Pomonal and my hosts suggested that I should go for a walk up to the Pinnacle. From there you should have a great view over the whole region.

I had no plan for today, so my first stop was the local Visitor Information Centre for some input. They came up with enough suggestions for at least a week, but I couldn’t fit that into my schedule. The weather isn’t too bad, so I just walked around. I didn’t take any pictures today (hey, that’s a first!). There’s so much to see here, but I couldn’t get it “on film”. If you want more: just Google for it, or better: come and see for yourself.
