Last week we had walkers staying with us here at Flamborough Rigg cottage, real walkers. Katie and I were playing in the garden when they walked up the drive carrying their back packs.
Sarah, Paul, Mary and Anthony were doing the Tabular Hills walk, all 48 miles from the North Yorkshire coastal town of Scarborough to Helmsley in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors. When they reached us they had walked for two days and had two further days of walking ahead of them. Crazy people! They seemed very happy, especially when Caroline served them a welcome cold drink on the sun terrace while they admired the garden.
During the day they had hiked through Dalby forest, around the Hole of Horecum and through the pretty village of Levisham. I guess all that walking made them extra hungry as they cleared their plates at dinner, all three courses, and didn’t leave a morsel for me!
Following a hearty cooked breakfast they set off on the next leg of their journey, through Cropton Forest to Cropton and then west through Hutton-le-Hole.
Katie and I waved them off before curling up in our baskets for a nap.
