Resumption of walk from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Castle Carey after two interruptions from broken arm at Weardale then disintegrated knee at Hellifield.
Hellifield SD 854 566 to Old Stone Trough south of Kelbrook SD 900 439 - Wednesday .
Dropped off at Carnforth by daughter Jill and granddaughter Katie - train to Carnforth. Started walking 7:50 am.
Just a brief account today to get up to speed with blogging on the hoof again. And a good excuse because I'm pretty tired after just over 14 miles with temperature increasing as the day went on. Most of the walking was on farm tracks and then canal towpath with a few small sections of road and field paths. All very pleasant in the rolling lowlands of the Yorkshire Dales with characteristic limestone scenery. On the canal I met Anne, Joe, and springer spaniel Doris and walked with them for a while. Doris is a rescue dog and only just coming to terms with water, but enthusiastic as always with springers, and it was all a bit nostalgic walking with the best of dog breeds again. I stopped off at a little canal-side café for tea and parted with the good company of Anne, Joe and Doris. I hope I have Joe's name correct - i suffer from the affliction of instantly forgetting names after being introduced. After that the heat increased and I was glad to arrive at the Old Stone Trough. Where I now sit awaiting food and writing this. I suspect I am not also up yo speed with my people watching.
More tomorrow including anything else that develops this evening.
