Deke is back, just for the day with my pals Jess and Chris Clapham. Great company, good laughs and I was really back on walking form too. Striding out, my bounce definitely back. Swellings still on the knee but all the pain and stiffness are long gone now. I led most of the walk today in lovely weather and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Ups and downs and hard paths are the order of the day. It's not too harsh distance wise so although I am feeling it at the end of the day I now know I am unstoppable until Scarborough. This walk has been brilliant and hard with spells of pain but its still brilliant. And today thanks boys - great company. Spike, Anne and Lil too. You have all been a great help. From tomorrow though it's up to me.
This section of the walk is great for hill climbing and provides some great vantage points to view the surrounding countryside including Swaledale, the Vale of Mowbray and the North Sea Coast, your first opportunity to look towards the Coast to Coasters ultimate goal. Comment - For the last three days I had enjoyed the comfort of accommodation at my sisters in Northallerton. A perk for one born so close to the path of the Coast to Coast. It was appreciated and made the crossing a little easier (and cheaper!)
