    ... gazing and walking across the Hill Fort, another ancient place through which Hamish Miller has dowsed the Mary current of the ley line. Again we call to mind the evocative words from his book the Sun and the Serpent:

We have had more good chats over the last day of so! Well, the end of our driving trip is in sight, only two days to go.
