We are currently heading west on the South Down's Way. The party consists of Obbsy, Lord Elpus and myself. We should have brought Miss Whiplash; at least she has a sense of direction. We started in fine form, and strode manfully up the Down unil we reached the top. A quick glance at the map and a check of the compass brought on a scratching of the heads, re-orienting of the maps and quzzical glances at each other.
I stuffed my map back furtively in my pocket and innocently asked Lord E for his decision on the way to go.
Of course it was back the way we had come. We had been manfully striding uphill in the driving rain in an easterly direction for the best part of an hour.
It's good for the soul.
It wouldn't have happened if Miss W had been with us and even if it had we would all have enjoyed the whipping she would have dealt out for the rest of the day.
