We are still in the Peaks , in fact we haven't moved the van since the weekend. Yesterday we decided to take the 'footpath' and walk to dad's so off we set in the sunshine only for the combination of mud, horses, sheep and our dogs to cause us to turn back but only blip we left the dogs in the van and went a'gambolling across the fields . The Jenster was wearing the Reebok suede high tops she got for a tenner at their Gretna Gateway outlet and you would think they were blummin silk ! Talk about careful ! My only other complaint is that whenever I showed signs of starting on the slippery slope to muddyarsedom the reeboks suddenly came second to the need to escape my attempts to use her for support . Anyways we made it over a number of fields and saw dwellings so headed downhill following the coffee scent from a wee pavement cafe. Wrong village but the cappuccino was excellent and the coincidence of a bus stop with an hourly service to our destination village was awesome pics will follow when reception improves

We overnighted at the mainland end of the Holy Island causeway before crossing for the day and returning with amber nectar for the Pendlewitch
