hiking thames marshes, or why you shouldn't pop blackberries in your mouth without looking first

Aw man, isn't this the cutest little snail you ever saw?

Stuart's finished hiking the Capital Ring around London, so he took me along on the first leg of the London LOOP (which stands for London Outer Orbital Path). Walking through Crayford Marshes, we hit every kind of weather you can imagine, short of hurricanes. The cloud display was impressive, it was a proper English-style bank holiday kind of outing.
