Quite an eventful day. We woke to pouring rain (actually it had been pouring most of the night). Eventually we decided to get dressed as the rain eased, packed up except for breakfast things. More rain prevented us eating outside so we were back in tents to eat. By 9.30 we had packed wet tents and sodden flysheets and were away. Gradually the sky improved and we were in sun.
