Firstly a confession....these are my hubby's pics not mine as he was out having fun whilst I was busy working :( they look so good though I thought it was worth an attempt at a first walk report, especially given that last time he tried to do this route he had to turn back with a raging fever & has wanted to return ever since....I think his patience paid off as he got these hills all to himself in such amazing conditions. Lucky boy :D
