Day 8 - Keld-Reeth
The day's walk was fairly uneventful-a 2mile walk to Keld (v small village, though with a nice tea shop-coffee and flapjack helped with the energy levels), followed by a nice walk to Reeth.
Today I crossed the Pennine Way - wondered as I did how long it would take if I turned South and walked home to Sheffield via Edale rather than continue East!
After another coffee and flapjack along the way, I blundered my way through uphill paths to Reeth-a lovely big market place with shops...had an ice cream, picked up a packet of maps that I'd sent ahead, and found my Youth Hostel.
A nice surprise in that two friends from Sheffield joined me at the Youth Hostel, and walked with me today.
'199 miles done, 1 to go' moments...
-an easier, shorter walk
-soundtrack-Moby, two wonderful sermons, 'I'm sorry I haven't a clue'...
-fun with friends
'1 mile done, 199 to go' moments...
-no phone reception for second day
A good day!
