Steady country walking today. Farmers' fields, stiles (often broken). Hardly saw anybody all day. A bit lonely. Wanted to get to Wetherby but without crippling effort it was too far then I spotted Maustin Park caravan/camping site on the map. Excellent set up including a restaurant (that was the good news) , but it is closed on Wednesdays. Seeing my obvious disappointment they made me a huge cheese and tomato toasted sandwich which they brought to my tent (free of charge Gayle) and it went down well with a pea and ham cup-a-soup. There will be chocolate drink and a chewy bar to follow later.
I have had a go with the camera and will do more when I get somewhere with unlimited charging facilities.

2. Another for my Signs collection
3. Typical Yorkshire Dales old lane - a delight for walking
4.the River Aire at Airton
That last was at 8:00 am this morning, Thursday. I have now walked into Wetherby. It is 11:00am. Knowing the whole picture including details I have not given here I know that whatever the outcome my support will be needed.
I have enjoyed the walk so far but to be savagely honest with myself I now know my knees are not really up to it, especially with the weight to carry for proper back backpacking, so when I have my fill of bacon butty and tea in this café I'm off to the bus station to find out how to get home.
