John O Groats to Sannick Bay and Back

We set out on this walk with a vaguely defined objective--see how many flowers we could find and identify. Ralph--pen name for hillwalker/kayaker/biker/botanist--had set a high standard by finding 100 in one of his adventures.
There were three of us on this walk: Cynthia, me, and The Book. Much of the walk was spent in close conversation with The Book.

The day was glorious.  We walked on the cliff top, down along a shingle beach, and then back up across pastureland and along the verge of the road.  We managed 40 different, reliably identified flowers and some we recognized (but did not count) from their seed heads or leaves.
