Hello. Guess where I am tonight. I made it to Windermere Youth Hostel. This one is a couple of miles outside Windermere, up a long lane from Troutbeck Bridge. I arrived by bus. Today I started off walking out of Malham, up a long steep climb towards Settle. It was slow going, I had to keep stopping to catch my breath. The weather has been warm and sunny for most of the day. I have picked the right week for my hols. This first pic is of the hotel next to the hostel, I bet it costs a lot to stay there, I bet I got the best deal at the hostel, ha ha.
Looking back, breathtaking views of Malham.
There are only two main stems growing out between the cracks at the bottom of the house, which produce all this foliage. Amazing how much of the building is covered.
There is a very nice walk along the river, with good footpaths, there was a lot of people about.
So here I am sitting in an arm chair, I am not sure I can get out of it. Although I have only walked seven miles today, my leg muscles are stiffening up. It's better if I keep walking then they stay supple.
My room mate is a young lady from Canada. What I .like about hostels is that you meet all kinds of people. Breakfast is ordered, I had a plate of chips tonight, I couldn't eat them all so I have put them into a bread bag to eat tomorrow. I'm getting tired now so I'll sign off. Let's see what tomorrow brings.
