Back from Northumberland

124u4726

 

We’ve just returned from a week in Northumberland. I didn’t take many pictures, but enjoyed a very relaxing week reading the first two thirds of Ranulph Fiennes biography of Scott, which sets out to right the wrongs done to Scott’s reputation in subsequent years. A truly fascinating book on many levels. Not only is there a tremendous sense of the level of physical endurance and bravery that Scott and the other Antaarctic explorers exhibited, but also much on the nature of Scott’s leadership and the way he related with his teams.
