Had a great weekend in Herm helping out with a Yoga retreat run by my good friend Caroline Wickham. My job was to help out with some outdoor activities between yoga classes and scrummy food. First up was a morning run round most of the Island.
There's a variety of terrain in such a small island with the mostly flat north featuring common, sand dunes and the vast expanse of Shell Beach. The there is the cliff path which is undulating and with a few sections of steps and then finally the inland paths. And none of it on tarmac. I was nursing a recovering calf tear so a nice gentle run with a couple of ladies was a good rehab for me.
I shot a bit of video - hope you like it.
Next up was a exploration of the island via Geocaches. If you've not heard of Geocaching then it is basically a treasure hunt by GPS. There's a stack of them on the island so we had a good walk around looking for them. We found all bar one which we were looking for.
Herm is very photogenic - even on a less than perfect day I October - I took a few snaps and posted them to my flickr - take a look here.
With morning and evening yoga sessions from Friday night through to Sunday lunchtime, some great food and company it proved to be a very enjoyable weekend. Caroline's retreats get fully booked so expect next year's to be popular too. Check out her website - the next Herm ones will be th elast 2 weekends in October 2016.
