The stars aligned today - sun shining, a cold breeze, I finally find my walking feet and have the perfect road to let them go.
On to the North Yorkshire Moors
I wasn’t expecting cake today.
This countryside feels very familiar - just like the Peak District.
Belted Galloways, like Oreos, much better behaved than the Friesians yesterday.
Six climbs (little ones) in the morning over theses hills.
Then after lunch an 8-mile stretch along the old Rosedale Railway - easy fast walking across the top of the moor.
Jackson Browne, Late for the Sky.
Got to the Lion Inn at Blakley by about 3.30, a couple of hours sooner than I’d expected. I’d have been happy to walk other 8 miles along the railway track today.
