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 ...

... feet after 500 miles, decided that coming off the wall and heading directly cross country to Haltwhistle was the best solution. It paid dividends as we were walking in to the B&B we are staying at on Saturday night at ten to five. Confused? I will explain tomorrow.

We cracked on at a reasonable pace so much so that we caught up with the Australian Peter who is also ...

And so, the end is near... Our last full day of travelling has arrived (don't worry there will be one final blog entry tomorrow to wrap everything up). Being the lazy people that we are, we didn't actually hit the road until 0850, which wouldn't usually be that much of a problem except we had planned to visit Holy Island first thing (a small island with a single road that gets cut off from the mainland when the tide comes in) and we were racing against the clock. The drive up to ...
