Walk Notes

A surprisingly cold day with a light rain to begin. Another good night with the ear plugs keeping out any tent flapping that may have occurred. We didn't get wet, but I was cold for most of the day, keeping warm by keeping moving. A busy pub the Cat & Fiddle on a Sunday and if you want to get served in any decent sort of time make sure you arrive before 12 - the food was mixed; Chris had an excellent Steak, but my burger was awful and £9 to boot! A great day though with good company and a shame to see the weekend come to an end - really enjoyable, thanks to Rose, Chris and Matt and also to Dean to meeting us on Friday night.
