Encounter at Hadrian's Wall (Award Winning!)

I'm thrilled to announce that my story "Encounter at Hadrian's Wall" received a Solas Award from Traveler's Tales for this year.

As a result, they may publish my story in some fashion at some point (fingers crossed). At the very least, I'm in contention to be included in an anthology later this year. They'll let me know as soon as they make those determinations . . . and you can bet I'll let you know when I get word of any publication!

In the meantime, I'm on hold in the above regards, so can't post any links nor post my story otherwise, until they've made their decisions. I can post some photos, however.

My story follows my wallow in the deep history of Hadrian's Wall, and including the more recent developments along it, as well as the beauty of English countryside.

One morning, early in my trek, I came upon this roadside

restaurant, where I enjoyed a great English-style breakfast.

Here I am at the highest point along Hadrian's Wall Path, 345 meters.

A section of the ruins of Hadrian's Wall somewhere midway across England.

The trail path sign at the western terminus, where I

completed my trek from England's east coast.

Bottom line: My blisters were worth it! Keep on trekking and walk in beauty.
