We started just inside the gated road on Cripdon Down and headed up to Hayne Down Tor with this view across to Haytor Rocks on the left and Hound Tor on the right.
We were not alone!
The view down to Manaton....
... and across to Easdon Tor
Below us bluebells and buttercups.
Down to the magnificent Bowerman's Nose
Down again to the lanes which we followed for a while. This is looking back across the buttercups to Bowerman's Nose.
Eventually we came to the track which leads up to Easdon Tor but headed first to the cairn on the east side with this view of Figgie Daniel
Looking back to Honeybag Tor
Stopping on top of Easdon Tor for a coffee break - Hamel Down is in the distance.
Across to Haytor Rocks and Hound Tor.
Returning through the lanes before going up to Cripdon Down Tor.
A brand new stile but not particularly easy to use and very difficult for the dog Sonny because there is barbed wire just below the top step.
We made good time finishing the walk just before 1 o'clock and it was then onto the very busy Rugglestone Inn where we managed to get a table in the garden just before our food arrived.
With Jane, Terry, Charlie, Colin and Amber.
