... off to walk the short distance over a couple of hills (mountains) back to the site. I should never have done it, the climb up the first 'hill' nearly killed me and my legs were like jelly by the time I got to the top. Then when I got to the most remote part of the walk I lost the footpath. It had clearly not been walked much and became increasingly over grown and then suddenly I didn't know where the path was and my GPS indicator started to spin so ...

The trail up was very wet with running water ...
Val and I actually managed to get up at 7:30 am and do our loop run in Hyde Park. It wasn't hot but it was muggy. After that, we packed up, checked out of the Thistle Kensington (where we were staying), and caught a taxi to Euston Station. Along the way we passed the house where the ex President Mushariff of Pakistan is living, complete with police armed with automatic weapons. I've heard that his neighbour is Tony Blair. We got on the train to Chester, and actually ...
