My 2013 begins with a walk in Huelgoat forest under alternating sunshine and heavy rain, and a cloudy day checking details around Locquenolé, Ploujean (ruined chapel of the Chateau de Keranroux pictured), Plouezoc'h and Barnenez. I must finish the Saints' Shore Way text by the end of January and my little Huelgoat book for April. More excitingly, I am back to the Mirror of Landscape with a rather clearer vision of the form the book will take, but it will take at least a year to write. This is one case where the process is to be spun out and savoured.
