I went in bare feet, cos I couldn't be bothered putting my shoes back on, and it was amazing how the ground felt! Because it was on a hill, it wasn't bog-lands there, but the grass and soil were really spongy, it felt good between my toes! We climbed up the rocks, and got some photos from the top, which will probably look like nothing (it's so ...
