///M Tour of the Exmoor National Park (UK)

Marcus once again pulled out all stops and sorted another great weekend itinerary of fantastic driving roads, scenery, accommodation in Lynmouth, food and...... 30deg c temps. Yes, I am talking about the UK, not Costa del Sol! in case the weather temps threw anyone

Took some photos while out on a morning run

Vow, exactly, you took it from my mouth. You UK guys have destroyed the "touristic" image of the Island I had for good with all these trips.

I always like these "Carpe Diem" experiences. You only live once. Gotta make the best of it.
