If you’ve been a member for a while you may recognise Hay Tor on Dartmoor.

It’s a popular spot and easy for us to get to, so we like to visit it from time to time. On this occasion a bitterly cold wind was blowing, especially as we approached the tor itself, but it was great to blow the cobwebs away. Also, it gave me a bit of inspiration for a scene I was struggling with in my latest Devonshire Mystery. I was planning to locate a scene in Exeter, but while we marched around the rocks, it struck me as a wonderful place to set a confrontation between Dan and a suspect in his latest case.

There’s also a snap of my old music centre that I’ve recently fired up. In my teenage years I bought this from my grandad, and I’m sure he’d be pleased that it’s still going strong.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Lottie wondering why she’s on a lead. The reason: she’s getting a bit old to go running madly down the hill, so we’re trying to protect her joints
