We are in the tiny village of Keld tonight, half way through the C2C. The countryside is lovely, people are friendly and, given that we are in the wettest part of the UK, the weather has been fairly good.
The days have been long. The daily distances are longer than the hikes in France and Italy, although there is less climbing, and progress is slow because the path is boggy in places making us spend lots of time looking for ways through the mud. Also, the route has almost no way-marking so we are constantly checking the guide book for directions through the maze of paths.
Here are a few photos from the last week. (Click on a photo to see it full size, use the arrow keys to go to the next or previous photo.)
