|Coast 2 Coast|
Mobile signals and internet access do not exist on the Pennines and in Swaledale.
Described as an easy section in the guide books. Two routes one along the river for wimps and the other along the high ground for real men.
Wish we had taken the river route.
The high ground was a slog, in wind and rain. Through the lead mining and smelting ruins of Victorian industry. We only passed through it, did not have to work there day after day.
Map reading skills deserted us today. For the first time GB showed some petulance when he disagreed with Dunc’s (correct) decision making.
Not too many photos today because one of us forgot to recharge the camera.
Have discussed what we will do when we have completed the walk and agreed to meet and discuss it at Christmas 2012.
Reached Reeth for the football results. Then Jen, Geordie Boy’s daughter, arrived to brighten things up. This being the first time we have felt weary.
Bed by the end of Strictly.
