Up here now
Lovely day, caught some sun. Walked with the wife and our two young uns from Starbotton to Kettlewell via Cam Head. Tough walk for the lads but they stuck at it
Walked back along the Dales Way after a spot of lunch in Zarina's (very good)
Lads now curled up in front of a DVD after a cracking first day
Great week up there - loved it. Stayed at Hill Top Barn in Starbotton - recommended if you fancy some time up there
Kids loved The Forbidden Corner (as did I) - another recommendation if you have young 'uns
Did the 'opposite' walk to one mentioned - walked from Starbotton north to Buckden 'over the tops' and then down into the village for tea and cake before walking south back to Stabotton along the Dales Way. Felt easier than the walk over Cam Head although I suspect we just took it slower
Had an afternoon up in Hawes too which is first time I've been - probably coldest day of the week which put a bit of a dampener on it. Nice pleace though, next Easter we'll probably stay up that way somewhere - Reeth or the like
Took the 4 bikes up there on the new bike carrier which attaches to the new tow bar. I took mine out for about 45 minutes and the other 3 went along for the ride..............
Brilliant week though, even the Mrs (who is London through and through) loved it
You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.
