Hello. Who are these two handsome chaps then. Well I haven't a clue what their names are, but they are twins, and they are doing John o Groats to Lands End on their bicycles. I met them at the Hostel last night, and again this morning. You meet such friendly people at hostels. Always someone to chat with.
The number 555 bus arrived at 9.18am and took me to Kendal. It was a short walk from the Bus Station to Milnthorpe Road, and the Sundial Guest House. This was the first B & B I came across when I was checking the internet last night for somewhere to stay. I was lucky, the landlady rang me back with a 'yes'. A very reasonable price as well, £30 is a bargain. I dropped a few things off in my room to lighten my rucksack a bit, and went off walking.
I had a quick look round Brigsteeer, a tiny hamlet with pristine white houses with immaculate gardens, built on a hillside. Then I took a path up through Honeybee wood. There was a farm track running alongside it, but the sign said the track was not a public right of way, and that walkers should use the route through the woods. I didn't mind, it was lovely and cool.
At the top is a cairn, it says so on the map and there it is. Can't see much of the farm now.
A few more pics of Kendal. I was too late to visit any museums or art galleries.
I am setting off back tomorrow but I don't know where I will get to. Not so many buses on a Sunday. I'm getting a bus to Lancaster in the morning, from there I don't know. Hoping to eventually get to Skipton, then Harrogate, and York. Will be home sometime on Monday.
Off to get a shower now, have a nice Sunday. Toodle pip.
