Here’s a little video we made while hiking the downs and forest above Brighstone, here on the island. It’s one of our favourite spots and it’s a go to for slacklining, trail running and even wildcamping.
I think the biggest factor was that feeling of simply moving through a landscape at a pace dictated by me. Not the weight in my pack or how fast the kids were moving or what the trail was like or how much my legs ached. If I wanted to run, I ran.
Day 2 of our hike around this little island we call home.
Ice creams, amusements and dead hiking shoes included.
