Diary Day Eighteen
was right when he had previously told Mo on the phone that his wife
was a wonderful cook. The home cooked roast beef dinner followed by
raspberry & apple crumble and custard was gorgeous. Unfortunately
George was putting up with hospital food, we are thinking of him and
hope that the op is a success and he will have a new lease of life
soon. We spent the rest of a very enjoyable evening looking through
all the photos so far with Irene.
Full waterproofs on and a 9.15am start, couldn’t wait any longer for the weather to improve so into the rucksack with Colin, not a happy chappy.
We continued from yesterday on the South Tyne Trail, which was beautiful with all the wild flowers although the midges were biting in the damp weather. The Lambley Viaduct has been fully restored and this route allowed us to view from the bottom and the top after climbing the staircase. Well worth the effort and as the showers had stopped allowed Colin out. The trail has now been completed right into Haltwhistle Station with the stone railway bridge over the River South Tyne completely restored.
to walk into Haltwhistle for a coffee we called in the newsagents and
had a friendly chat with Marie then onwards up to Fell End Farm
finishing the day early at 2.30pm in sunshine with a warm welcome and
the promise of another home cooked meal tonight.
is looking forward to seeing Hadrians Wall tomorrow so hoping for fine
for now Mo, Dave & Colin.
Almost at Haltwhistle
