A glider passes ahead of me as ponies graze near the path and a distant view to the Beacons draws my eye.

The glider, which I take to be an open-cockpit affair, with possibly side-by-side seating (and therefore maybe a training model), had a 'parp-parp' type squeezy horn on board which the pilot (or trainee pilot) sounded when gliding near other gliders, or maybe he was trying to attract my attention and emphasise the superiority of flight over schlepping along on shanks' pony.

I've done both and know which I prefer.
