(visited by Gordon Spence and Oscar the Dog)

16-Apr-2010 -- Spring 2010 Holiday

Visit 2 of 5 - continued from 53N-01W.

Having left 53N-01W we carry on up the East coast route, with the sat-nav saying we should be here just after 10am. Roll into the village and park up opposite the village hall.

On with the boots this time as I know how wet the fields can be here and we have to cross two of them. As we walk along the path at the side of the village hall Oscar is very interested in the man cutting the grass...

Round the corner of the field and let Oscar run loose, over towards the "gateway" to the CP and pass through. Crop is only 1 inch high and again the tractor tracks are spot on.

Having taken the required photo's we start back to the car. Now, Oscar loves the outdoors - we walk most days down by The Lakes and he loves water. He managed to find a muddy puddle for a quick drink and a paddle!

Back to the car, a quick drink for each of us and on towards Scotland, this time via 55N-02W.
