Walking the Offa's Dyke Path is one of the best things I ever did.  Many thanks to all the people who devised and maintain it.   I loved the variety of scenery, and seeing signs in Welsh.  They add a special flavour to it. During my walk, I also wrote 72 poems, here is one of them and more to follow via the website and the Trails social media.Hergest RidgeI missed a turn and came insteadTo some small place called Bungy's Head.Retracing steps past mare and foalI very soon regained my goal.A finger-post appears in sightI really must get this one right.To stop at Gladestry I proposedBut find the bloody pub is closed. It's such a struggle up the hillIt very nearly made me ill.I must keep going to the topI simply can't afford to stopAnd when I reach the topmost highGogoniant y gororau! Then all at once I see a standOf monkey puzzle trees €“ how grand!Then down a long and grassy slopeTo Kington I serenely lope.No time to visit Hergest CroftEnticingly though flowers waftSo passing it my hat I doffedAnd hurried by with nose aloftAnd straight onto this evening's digs €“The final zag to many zigs.
