A friend invited me to join her for a walk this morning. It may be a bit hilly, she said, but it is all on tarmac so no steep, muddy paths to negotiate.
The route was a circular one, climbing up above the village of Laxey and around the top of the "bowl" that encircles the valley. Great views but boy was that hard work for me puffing up and down all those steep bits.
A little over two hours walking, but the reward was a very pleasant lunch in the Laxey Glen Cafe at the end.
