Walking by beautiful rivers where medieval hounds lay in wait. We stayed at The Forest Inn and the Two Bridges, both highly recommended. Such a relaxing time, and I have fallen in love with rivers. Orchids, stepping stone, cotton grass and twilight heron flights, a red fox, goosander, redstart and buzzards. Returning home I looked up the farm where the dog came from, Sherberton Farm. Such a gentle hound.
