10th August 2015
On Monday Cathy & I headed to Wells. We had chosen a rather novel activity for our wedding anniversary, Alpaca trekking along the coast footpath. We arrived just before 11 and met our guide, Ian, who gave us a bit of information about his Alpacas, before heading out. We probably looked rather odd walking them through the outskirts of Wells, although I'm sure the locals are used to it by now. We soon emerged onto the coast footpath, and had a very pleasant couple of hours walking towards Warham. The fields and saltmarsh were awash with colour, and it was a lovely sunny day to be out. The Alpacas were generally well behaved, and when we got back we fed the them some chopped up apples, which went down very well. Arriving back at the car a few Swifts headed over the town.
[Edit] Also a reminder to anyone interested in celestial phenomena that the Perseid meteor shower peaks tomorrow evening (Wed 12th). It is usually one of the best annual displays of meteors, along with the Geminids in December.
