A rare 7:00 am breakfast. The Park Hotel was pretty good - professional.
Photos below show the mere at Diss and Diss centre.
Again all paths well trimmed giving easy and pleasant walking - full sun all day. Even crop field edges , my bête noir, have good paths and not ploughed out to the edges.
Off my path to the right a good clean wide track lead down to a picturesque ford. Somebody had dumped a black dog poo bag in the middle of the path making a sickening contrast with the light colour of the track. Have these people heard some myth that there are roaming collectors who come and pick these things up?
Until I got to Harleston today, only three kms. from my destination I have walked for one and three quarter days without passing anywhere that I may have bought something. I have met about half a dozen dog walkers and one walking group, and this on one of our recognised nstionsl long distance paths.
I am booked in at the Sir Alfred Munnjngs Hotel. I think he came from these parts. There are many prints of his horses but the reply was in the negative when I added if they had any originals.
