Compusures all good - especially like the shadows in the bottom one.
OK we are back early. We failed again in our attempt to walk across England. Geoff has serious blisters. Foot all bound up. We were never meant to do that walk all in one go. Will return to finish in stages. We did get half way though - 95 miles.

WOW! Congratulations, MOO and Geoff! That's great!

I once walked the Northville Placid trail in a go--120 miles. Through the mountains. But I was younger then--in my 40s. Carried everything in a backpack and camped.

Yes, super shadows.

Well I guess we didn't feel it was great not to finish. Would have looked forward to celebrating at Robin Hoods Bay on the East Coast with all the other walkers that we had met up with on the way. Most especially two guys who were walking for charity "alzheimers". They were so funny. They reckoned they needed to support alzhaimers as they were sure to need it one day.

But thanks for the congrats anyway!

Sounds like a fun time apart from the blisters - 95 miles is along way - how many days walking was that ? Thanks for the great comments on photos guys !!!

We were one week. It should have taken two if we'd done the lot. It would have been nice to have the luxury of taking 4 weeks and have a day off every other day to recover. But apart from the time that would have cost twice as much!

I'm probably;y too old, but if I ever do do it again--walk long distances--I want to take more time, not less.

And these pix are gorgeous.

Wish time was on our side!

I agree they are great pics ~ glad we keep getting to look at them!
