In Northumberland for a few days in the hope that the weather would be kind and allow some walking. Today was the first day and although cloudy the weather was surprisingly warm. So much so that I was actually perspiring for a lot of the return journey.
Northumberland was delightful as we set out to climb the Simonside Hills. With the various peaks either just below 1000 feet or slightly above the walking is not hard but with wet ground underfoot it is not easy either. Including stops to admire the beautiful scenes the walk last just about 5 hours and about 15 miles long. A walk i would throughly recommend especially if the rain holds off as it did. It rained just as we got back to our guest house. Now that is what I call planning!
