    Well another day completed....but my goodness, it was harder than anything we have ever walked I think. Set out just before 9 after nice cooked breakfast and finally staggered into our hotel here at Rosthwaite at 5.45 - 9 hours walking!! And it wasn't the distance - though that was long - 16 miles which is about 25 kms- it was that almost never was it easy walking. The flat start along Ennerdale Water was an easy start so we thought, but the flat track was loose ...

    Success- we have completed day 1!!!

    I have to admit that I was very anxious last night - wondering if we could do this walk....and if we would get lost and walk miles off the track etc...well, I have to say that we have had a fantastic day!! It was quite a marathon 27 kms, and it took 8 hours. Our book, which has become our bible, said it was an 8 hour walk, but usually that means 7 as they quote it for the slowest walkers. Well, there was no way ...

    ... family business until he decided to go on his own and specialise in soap - a commodity everyone needed, and pioneered making it and selling it in bars - previously it had been made from animal fat, and cam in bulk and you cut off pieces for people like cheese....just thought that was interesting. He was rather like Frick of the Frick collection in NY - he started collecting art with soap advertising in mind, then became hooked and became a lover of art. He died in 1925. ...

    ... the slices of bread were about an inch thick!!!! A couple sitting next to us ordered a slice of cake each. The slices were massive, probably equivalent to two regular slices. Of course we couldn't resist but decided it would be more manageable to share but even we struggled.

    After Hawkshead, we headed back to Ambleside for a wander around. Once again the place was packed. I can't imagine what it would be like in the middle of Summer. The road was ...

    ... who was traveling around Scotland alone. What a brave woman as there are some long stretches of road that are quite isolated plus she told us she had been climbing up a few hills where she could easily have fallen. We got on the road about 9.30 and headed back to the cemetery we'd found late yesterday afternoon. It had poured overnight and the clouds looked pretty threatening so we tried to get a walk around the headstones done before the heavens ...
