I had a date with Gill for coffee at Cliffe Castle Cafe this morning so I decided to walk over the moor and down in to Keighley. My route across the moor is very familiar but when I reached the main road I was trying to find a path to take me down through the woodland which I had last used many years ago. I wasn't successful and had to retrace my steps back to the busy road and go down from there. Thanks to Wilsden Walker I now know where I went wrong!
I stopped off at the toyshop to pick up a new jigsaw and then spent a very pleasant hour or so in Gill's company before she dropped me off in Bingley en route to her appointment. It was too long till the next bus so I walked home through St Ives. A quick lunch and then it was in to the scruffs to put a second coat on the bathroom. I had promised myself fish and chips for tea but it wasn't open! So a very late casserole was prepared only for me to cut in to my baked potato and discover something alien inside (agh horror!) That went in the bin and I awarded myself a whole Tunnocks as consolation.
My blip is taken from the moor looking down on Keighley in the Aire Valley.
Day 5 and Tony has been trekking from Corvara to Utia Scotoni via a rock pinnacle which looked like the Italian Old Man of Sgorr! Tonight the group is staying in a remote refuge high in the mountains with on site alpacas that apparently came out to greet them.
