I wanted to do a hike. I picked a challenging one in the south of the island which involved an edgy path along some steep cliffs. But then things conspired against me - I needed some fuel in my car so as not to risk being stranded out in the rural parts, but the fuel station was closed, ironically, for refuelling. And a wild wind had sprung up after days of absolute calm, which made me a little bit wary of exposed paths by steep drops.

So I decided to do a shorter drive to a less exposed hike, and went in search of Halley's Mount. I'd seen a sign to it from the trail to Diana's Peak, so I drove back there. On the first part of the trail, there were fantastic views to the south west, past the rock dome of Lot to the barren coast.
