The Blustery Day
Headed off from Kineton and was surprised by the wind, it didn't stop all day and the 78 miles to Alveston (Bristol) was REALLY hard work. Passed the Four Counties Stone (Ox, Warks, Glous, and Wors) and had lunch sheltering in Northleach church. Even in the wind the Cotswolds were stunning and the drop down to Wooton-under-Edge almost made the 4500 of uphill worth it.
Josh came out to show me the last bit to his parent's house and Tim and Dan were on fine form. Had a great meal with Pete and Adele and slept well.
Both Adele and I moaned that the new BBC weather web site is so much worse than the old one, they have removed the symbols showing temperature and wind and replaced them with text- useless! We must be getting old..
