It was tempting to head in to Sedbergh and find a B&B. Instead I pushed on.
Thunder was beginning to mutter in the distance. Not good, with a storm brewing I really needed to stop soon.
As promised, I was away shortly after seven thirty next morning. My aim was for Burneside. Roughly calculated it is was in the region of fifteen miles.
It was raining when I set off on the Monday morning. Initially it was only light rain. but at times it became heavy.
Bowness itself remained hidden until almost the last moment.
The mileage covered varies from which ever guide book is consulted. Overall, my calculations give an average of eighty three miles over six days. That is four whole days and two half days. Surprisingly I coped ok, but did experience one fall, which is unusual for me. At times I wobble but that is about all.
The journey back was interesting. No trains running from Oxenholme northwards. Buses and taxis were running a shuttle service. It was fun ending up in a taxi to Carlisle, paid by Virgin trains, I may add.
