Walk Report

Dorking to Boxhill, Saturday 10th December 2011
25 walkers, 20 miles - leader Peter Buchwald
The sun shone low in the clear blue sky
Transfiguring nature's vivid winter coat
Every green blade with its white frost cloak
And late toadstools grew in viridian verges.

We splashed through a muddy quagmire
Picked our way through fallen trees
Up the wooded flanks of a short steep hill
Supped beer and eat lunch in a country inn.

We walked to the tower at the top of the hill
Spent the afternoon under quiet, shady trees
We found a waterfall by a limpid stream
And finished our day under a big full moon
