Wainwright Coast to Coast Part 3

After 3 days in the Yorkshire Dales we moved on to North Yorkshire to resume our 3 year trip along the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk.

I'm doing it with good friend Al, from Gloucester. Al tells me I have to say hello to everyone following our progress in Australia. Hello! Condolences on losing the Ashes series!

We started in the Swan in Danby Wiske with a couple of pints of Gun Dog Bitter. Al could only manage one as he had to drop off his car at our end point for the day.  Off to a good start one way or another!

The walk from here was across fields on slippery, muddy tracks in flat lands. Dry and really overcast. Not the best walking country!  No photos, I didn't even carry my tripod.

We arrived at 4.30pm but had to wait until 5.30pm to check-in at the Blue Bell Inn. After dumping our luggage in the room we retired to the bar for a couple of pints of Blue Bell bitter.

After a quick wash and brush up we resumed our session with Blue Bell bitter. The Theakstons bitter was well under par so we stayed on Blue Bell all night.

Tomorrow is forecast to be a better day weather wise along the Cleveland Edge. Hope Al manages to avoid the dreaded chafing that he usually suffers on these trips!
