Day 2: Monday 18th April

Lambs everywhere.

 

What a day.  Blue sky for the most part and not cold, but the wind!!!  A steady 30-40mph from the west with gusts above 50mph.  Sadly, as I was walking south-west for most of the day I had the wind in my face.  Between fighting the wind and avoiding lorries on the A9 progress was slow today, and really hard work.  Just over 18 miles clocked up before calling it a day.

I met Hazel for a lunch stop at the Dunbeath Tea Room.  We met a couple of chaps who are cycling JOGLE.  They were finding it really hard going too.

High spots today included many lambs gambolling (cute), some hairy cows, a visit for Hazel to a croft museum, and a spectacular rainbow.  I’m afraid my photo doesn’t do it justice.

Weather tomorrow looks better so here’s hoping.
