On a Clear Day

After a most enjoyable evening yesterday, I woke up surprisingly early and full of worry.

So the obvious thing to do was to get up, get dressed, set off in the car and travel 35 miles to find this path:

It's the path from the Sutton Bank Visitor Centre, along the Cleveland Way, and it's one of the best paths in the whole world.

You can walk along it for miles. The path itself is not difficult at all: the views are magnificent.

Do please click on the photo to make it bigger, because on a clear day you can see forever, and this was a clear day.

There are woods, fields, hills and cliffs:

It all goes on for miles and miles in utter gorgeousness:

We set off from the visitor centre at half past nine and met very few walkers - once you get a couple of hundred yards from the centre, it's just never crowded.

There are plenty of my favourite dry stone walls - but even the old fences managed to look picturesque today:

Stephen had his camera too and tried to take a photograph of Lake Gormire, but unfortunately some woman in a silly hat got in the way. Perhaps someone out there might be able to identify her.

Of course, unlike the woman above, I managed to look both classy and sophisticated the whole time, and didn't get sunburned to a ridiculous shade of red at all.
