It's been a few months since I had done my hill walking and my heart was going like a kettle drum. I've still done plenty of walking recently but mainly on the flat and along the roads. I call it my mountain gymnasium.
I didn't have my headphones with me yesterday's, just my bottle of water and my 'trusty' hiking stick. Yet again it stopped me when I slipped descending the hills and slipping in the saturated tracks of the Sheepshead Way.
However my mental jukebox began to play in my head. Good old Gary Moore (RIP) ex Thin Lizzy and who I saw at the Garden Party at Milton Keynes Bowl way back in the 1986. Seems like a life time away. What a day that was with Mamas Boys, Magnum, Gary Moore and his band, Jethro Tull and Marillion with Fish headlined the music festival and the sun shone like it did every day when you and I was young.
It was a good walk and blew the cobwebs away.
