Half-Term Holiday Hiatus
Another brief (one-week) blogging hiatus while we travel to the Lake District for a week of fellwalking in the persistent light rain. Yesterday, in Leamington Spa, I bought new Hi-Tec V-Lite hiking shoes (see photo) to replace the bald-soled shoes I bought last summer. Unfortunately, at the moment I'm laid low by my fourth bad cold since we arrived in England. These English germs really like me. The blog will be back on the Saturday or Sunday, 2nd or 3rd of June, if I don't fall off Swirral Edge or St. Sunday Crag.
