    ... are the tea finger sandwiches which are 1) egg salad and water cress, 2) lox, cucumbers and cream cheese and 3), the upper tier has scones and "clotted cream". I still haven't figured what that is. It looks, smells and tastes like butter; definitely not Parkay! My favorite tier, however is the middle tier with banana bread, raspberry-almond tarts, berry tarts, lemon tarts and orange/white chocolate mouse tarts!

However the rain held off as we left Orton, the cloud base slowly rose, the gloomy light brightened, and by early afternoon we were walking in the sunshine again. Today's 25 km leg was fairly straightforward again walking through ...

Another meal at the pub with new friends then to ...

    ... colorful plants popping out. I'll try to take some photos of some next opportunity I have. You don't have discarded tractors, trailer parks and other discarded junk or abandoned buildings visible from the side of the road as you see in the US. Another nice thing is the lack of billboards and even parking areas are shielded in the woods behinds trees and hardly visible from the road.

    ... path had more climbs so we were not very happy. Eventually we left the reservoir and got our first taste of the beautiful countryside to come in the next stage of the walk. Goodbye Lakes. We arrived in the delightful village of Bampton Grange at 4.30. We were both surprised at how good we felt. The feet have not got any worse since Day 2 and seem to be coping well with the daily pounding. No new blisters or dressings for me...amazing! Katrina wanted me to point out she has not had any ...
