All was going so well until,Worse path ever Brambles for a 1/4 of mile, up hill and in mud !!!
I gave them a good thrashing but legs and hands ripped !

Nice seat on Cothelstone hill views towards Minehead and the Brendan hills
Sun was blazing causing haze over landscapes :( 
                         still a very cold wind

Did i mention some great views !

Stunning stuff 

On up over Lydeard hill and on to Wills Neck its Trigpont

 The highest point on the Quantocks @ 386m-1266.4ft

Then @ Hawkridge Reservoir i spotted a Hooded Merganser !!

Almost back after a lovely day spent with my mate
