    Ärkan vara, sest on oht ilusale ilmale. Väljas on karge ja värske, ükskõik kuhu suunas pead keerutada, ei hakka silma ühtegi pilve.
    Kämpinguplatsil istuvad mõned inimesed telkide ees ja kärsutavad midagi. Läbi lammaste pääseb Crummocki järve äärde. See on siinne suurem järv, väiksemat nimetatakse küla järgi Butteremere'i järveks. Kunagi olid …

    Märkan Wasdale Head'ist välja sõites kiviaia sees postkasti. Kommunikatsioon on siiski olemas.
    Teed ei ole vahepeal laiemaks läinud. Teel Ennerdale'i järveni läbin avara lauge rohelise maastiku, taamal helesinine meri. Ennerdale on vähekülastatav, sest peale paari maja järve ääres asustus puudub. Sellegipoolest on parklas juba käputäis autosid …

    ... lunch. I had bought muesli bars in St. Bees, at their one shop/P.O. And Amr scoffed, said he was OK with nuts. So am SO glad I had them....we have already ordered a packed lunch from the hotel for tomorrow!! St. Bees had one shop, since then we have seen no shops of any kind! Rosthwaite is one of 3 hamlets all combined to be called Borrowdale. But no shops. This is SO different from the Camino. Tougher walking, and no bars and cafes along the way! But an amazing ...

    Success- we have completed day 1!!!

    I have to admit that I was very anxious last night - wondering if we could do this walk....and if we would get lost and walk miles off the track etc...well, I have to say that we have had a fantastic day!! It was quite a marathon 27 kms, and it took 8 hours. Our book, which has become our bible, said it was an 8 hour walk, but usually that means 7 as they quote it for the slowest walkers. Well, there was no way ...

    ... stop - Preston - where we had a connection of 10 minutes to train no. 3 - the Transpennine express. Got there with about 4 minutes to leap down the steps and up the steps with our bags to this important train, and found that it was a dear little 3 carriage train, that meandered its way to Barrow-in-Furness, which is on a tip of land surrounded by water. By this stage we had chilled out, and are now on the 4th train heading for Carlisle, but get out at St. Bees after about ...
