Postcard from England - Pentire Farm
Dear Arthur -
I have to tell you I've been taking a lot of walks with Tom the border collie. But don't be jealous! His people are rather infirm and not able to stroll with him as rigorously as they'd like. Yesterday we visited Pentire Farm, a working farm on a piece of land owned by the National Trust, and hiked a nearby coastal trail known for its view of ruins dating back to the British Iron Age. (That's approximately 7th century B.C.E. to 43 C.E. in case you were wondering.)
Coming back, we cut across a sheep field, which was was fine with Tom because he retired from herding some years ago and cares nothing for sheep anymore.
I wonder how you would do in a field of sheep?
