June 30 – Hard to believe that it’s the last day of June. Our time in England is flying by! Ten miles today and we’ll be out of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and on to Richmond.
Lovely walk out of Reeth.
Always nice to start the day on a marked path. We’re on the right track!
Mostly flat terrain – my favorite!
Still near the Swale River.
An old priory, viewed as we passed, then again from the hill above.
A little town along the way.
In Marske, St Edmunds Church was open, and offered drinks and snacks for hikers. It had boxes for congregant families, instead of pews.
Above the baptismal font, a palindrome that reads, “wash my sins and not my face only.”
Walking through freshly mown fields. You can tell where the trail is by the green stripe.
More teens setting out on their Duke of Edinburgh challenge.
A walk through a shady wood…
…and there’s Richmond!
Looking forward to a quiet day off in town. Details tomorrow.
