Preparation for Coast to Coast Last Leg

We're in the Yorkshire Dales with friends walking the hills, taking some photos.

It's also a bit of last minute training for the last leg of the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk that I started with good friend Al 2 years ago. We are going to take 5 days to walk the 60 miles from Danby Wiske to Robin Hoods Bay, starting Monday.

Yesterday we had a good day on Pen-y-Gent before big Al arrived, a 15 mile day. This included a break at the Crown in Horton to sample the Old Peculiar, which was on fine form, followed by a few pints of Nutty Black in the evening.

Today we walked to Giggleswick and back to Austwick, an 11 mile day. There were a few showers today but it was nice enough to sit outside at lunchtime. I had a couple of pints of Great Bear from a local brewery. Back on Nutty Black tonight.

The only photo today was taken at the pub at lunchtime on my phone. There were some good spells but not with views that I wanted to take. Maybe tomorrow will be better for photography.
