Devil's Punchbowl Walk

Our friend Hazel came to visit us from California. Alison and Hazel went walking several times during the week and I stayed home to cut the grass and work on my open source project. However I agreed to join them on Saturday to visit the Devil's Punchbowl at Hindhead, Surrey.

The punchbowl is a geological feature of the South Downs. It's a natural hollow in the ground. It's about 4 miles long and 2 miles wide. I can't explain the geology. It's not a meteor impact crater.

We were intending to do the 6 mile hike which is a figure of 8. The trail passes through the visitor area after 3.2 miles. We stopped for lunch and it started to rain. The forecast for the afternoon was heavy showers and we didn't want to get wet. So we went to visit the Semaphore Tower on Ockham Common. We succeeded in dodging the showers. On Saturday evening we enjoyed "The Last Night of the Proms" on BBC TV.

I'm working very hard on Exiv2 at the moment. I'd like to release v0.26.1 this month. There's a lot to be done. We'll see if I can achieve this goal.
