Our second rest day today and zero walking miles. We have however travelled several hundred. Last night after finishing in Haltwhistle, we jumped in a taxi and headed for the airport, catching the last flight to Heathrow. Our aim, to surprise Lucy. Both Rob and I have been very conscious that our walk has rather distracted from the fact that Lucy ...

Ok, so perhaps we'd spent a little longer at the castle then we really should've done. It was almost 40 minutes passed the safe crossing time! One of two things was about to happen, either: 1) The water would be too high and we'd have to stay on the island for another six ...

We had a great night out at the pub and Lesley's husband, Dave (who is 6'8") and Jen's husband Terry, came along. We had another great chinwag about the family. All to soon it was past midnight and, "time for bed" said Zebedee! Our first real late night of the holiday. Ka kite ...
