Coast to Coast Diary
Day 10 - At last, an easy leg
Reeth to Richmond
Today was our easiest day for a while. We re-entered our coast-to-coast bubble and arranged to meet Pat and Miriam who were staying in Marrick a few miles further on from Reeth. We had a decent breakfast (rating 7) and headed off out of Reeth which really is a beautiful place. We called on the ladies to see if they were playing out and their B&B looked a bit of a mess. It sounded like they had a bit of a poor B&B experience though it provided good material for a few laughs as most of the day before they had been boasting about staying at ‘The Lodge’ and how wonderful it was going to be with such a grand name like that. It looked very different to how they imagined.
We reached Richmond by 12.30 so had a quick bite and we showed the ladies the sites of Richmond. I'd forgotten what a nice place it was. We did get some funny looks though and we joked that we must look like “The wild men from the mountains’ although the good people of Richmond must be used to C2C’ers or it’s just Dale and me that looked odd. Probably the latter. We waved the ladies off as they had a further 10 miles to go and we will meet them in Glaisdale for the last leg.
Caught up with the God Squad in a tea room and they looked to be lower on numbers but those left were in good spirits. I hope they make it.
Dale met up with Kate and Nat which was nice and I left Dale to spend some time with them while I put my feet up and watched the footy.
Hopefully will go for a curry tonight but will lay off the beer, as it is a long day tomorrow. Hope the Achilles holds up, still a bit sore but OK.
Bye for now.
