Day 6 - Shap to Kirkby Stephen

Another hard slog today, and the longest at 21 miles. Got lost once-having the OS maps has been a help-but made it to the Old Croft House b and b. It was an amazing b and b-picture included of the bed-with-curtains!

Saw lots of sheep today (as on most days) and countryside noticeably flatter, though still beautiful.

Also crossed the M6-a milestone I guess!

Running-the-last-3-miles moments...
-weather: hot and sunny!
-contact with friends an encouragement today
-Old Croft House-luxurious b and b
-soundtrack today (loved Damien Rice's O, Sovereign Grace live Worship, and sermon on Ephesians 1)
-sending all my camping gear back home

Blister-on-foot moments...
-getting lost (needed OS map twice)
-long mileage
-sore feet!
