This Sunday we arranged to meet with friends Karen and Mark out at Weddington. We left home in bright sunshine but within about 10 minutes we were in dense fog.. we slowly made our way over to them.
We wrapped up and headed off into the fog, never being able to see more than 50 yards in front of us. We took the country roads and trudged through muddy fields from Weddington to Ash and on to Staple. Which apparently in good weather offers fabulous views to Chilenden. We managed to find our way to the Black Pig Pub at Staple, lovely country pub, very busy, a kind chap gave up his table for us to sit and have lunch as he was just having a pint and was happy to sit at the bar… how kind. The food was very good and the wine slipped down easily !
The return walk from Staple past a vineyard might have been called Barnsole (?) back for a tasting in the summer I think.
