From a favourite fly tipping spot to S of the main A380 Torquay bypass. Sign states covert cameras to catch tippers. A flat back truck full of garden waste parked up looked suspiciously like the next candidate, but oddly no-one around. Along the old road and over brambly old gate into summit pasture. Delayed setting of until coast was clear as I had spotted what I presumed was the landowner with 3 large dogs roaming free in these fields. I was wrong - he was the truck owner who arrived back as I did but with just 2 dogs and asked if I had seen his red setter which had disappeared - probably after a scent - usually comes back eventually. These accessible fields were a regular dog walking halt for him. Blue Mountain -a odd name for a non descript pastures -little in common with its Australian namesake where the bluish haze is caused by the eucalyptus trees that cover the mountains, which release an oil that evaporates into the air and creates a bluish mist.Chris Pearson15/03/2024
