Grinton to Brompton-on-Swale.
Glorious weather, for the first time, all day, wonderful.
Almost too hot to walk but beautiful scenery as river widens & slows down. Briefly met up with Tom from Preston & Lisa from Leipzig.
Enjoyed a light lunch in Richmond square, including Yorkshire Curd Tart from Thomas the Baker. Also enjoyed a drink of Black Sheep at the Buck Hotel to give us strength to reach Brompton!
Bought a Coast to Coast ‘T’ Shirt so now we have to finish. Paul was wearing his Jersey cap when we met a Guernseyais, who called Paul a ‘Crapeau’ (means Toad in French). You now know what Paul’s new nickname is!!
194 km (121 miles) completed. Will pass the 200 km mark after 2 hours walking tomorrow, yippee, only 120 km to finish.
We are all well, no new blisters; confident we will finish.
Hambleton Hills in view today – a big boost.
Approx. 22 miles of walking tomorrow, a long way!
Thanks for all encouraging comments received.
Dave, Paul & Steve
