Today was always gonna be a long day, It was also good bye to the Lake District.
Up and out by 7.30. It was a 16 mile marathon with the first 6 miles climbing. Was misty but soon climbed above the mist to give stunning views over the dales we had left. See photos.
Climbed up to and along Kidsty Pike, we were walking on top of the world. Lucky enough to see a herd of deer across the fell, and to hear the stags bellowing. Am becoming almost lyrical, may start writing poetry soon. Watch your step Wordsworth.
Dropped down and walked the length of Haweswater, to be met by Baz Dunn who had come to meet us and escort us back the last few miles to Shap. Now all three of us are together on our third pint in the Greyhound. We may be able to stay up tonight beyond the end of The One Show.
