Had company on the walk today, Olga a Dutch/Australian lady who is doing half of the Coast to Coast. Good to have someone else to talk to other than Geordie Boy.
Every day we play a little game. We guess how far we have walked and check it to the GPS. Always knock off a tenth of mile off Geordie Boy’s guess as he always about a tenth of a mile behind.
Another first today Geordie Boy has learnt how to open and shut gates, something he has found impossible to do in the previous 6 days.
Having Olga with us certainly improved the language and the topics of conversation were at a slightly more academic level.
Was a walk of just over 12 miles. This used to be more than we could achieve, now its just a gentle stroll.
We are at Kirby Stephen, the second biggest place we are stopping at. It is described as a bustling town! There is nowhere to eat, so it will have to be the pub again. Apparently there is a quiz tonight, the biggest event of the week. Is that bustling?
I think we are now in Yorkshire.
86 miles done 110 to go.
