There are some days when you don't have much of a say in it. Today was such a day. The company was terrible: My brother with the hair accompanied me for the day so I distinguished myself with some crap map reading in Hebden Bridge to find our way back to the Pennine Way. We found it eventually.
We then found an excellent emporium selling everything a Pennine Rambler could wish for - so four cans were purchased along with comestibles for the day.The weather was perfect and then we found a pub. Three pints of Black Sheep sorted most things out and we got to discussing old girlfriends. I will leave it there, as Debbie and Lynnie read this blog.
We spent another lazy hour leaning against a wire fence overlooking the reservoirs, polishing off some cans. The ground was earthy and soft and bent beneath our feet and recovered as we passed over it. We were soon at Top Withins discussing Chick Lit with an American couple from St Louis.
Brother Dave left me as Waggy whisked me away to Mike's for a washing machine, shower and dinner.
A perfick day.
