Dry Mere and the Roman Road 3rd November 2012

A very short walk, taking advantage of the time I get to myself while Carol is plugged into the machine away in Leeds!
I picked up Babs and we drove to the start of the walk and then walked it in the reverse of what we did back in July. The weather seemed much nicer today although it was cold and the wind was bitter.
We did the walk as fast as we could to facilitate me getting to East Leeds on time. There seemed to be a lot of people out. Babs very similar to Carol in wanting not to meet anyone on walks!!
We had a nice time catching up and in some ways the views are better this way round. There is a very boggy bit at the bottom of the Roman road but this has now been improved with some drainage channels.

I had a feeling I looked remarkably silly even in the nice new jacket!

Just a cairn

Babs’ new wellies, she is very proud of these!
The white blob sticking up is the trig point being cheeky
