He was great, picked us up and returned to the walk as well as taking us to the pub and back. He was well hard! We had on three layers of wicking, windproof coats and gloves. Dave had a short sleeved T shirt.
On familiar territory for us, easy walking on the bed of the old Rosedale Railway spur. Sun shining but the wind cut you in half. Got to Blakey by lunchtime, there can be nowhere better to spend an afternoon than the Lion on Blakey Ridge. The rooms are great, long radox soaks for both of us, (separate baths, separate rooms!).
The miles are catching up on the legs, but there is certainly another 30 miles left in them. We talked about what we would do on Sunday, it will be strange not having to put boots on.
Thanks to Paul (webmaster) for his posting and everyone else in cyber land for supporting us. It would be great to see anyone who can make it to Robin Hood’s Bay. If we have any money left, we will buy you a half.
The bar of The Lion is now calling us.
