Early in the day I had to share the path with a huge number and variety of snails.
I found a quiet corner just off the path for a substantial lunch – in a cold wind and light drizzle. The poor weather did not continue, it brightened up by the time I reached Kirkstead Bridge.
Sunday morning was sunny and bright. I had breakfast with fresh coffee by the lake. Packing away is easy when carrying all the gear, I do not have much with me so it does not take long to pack up.
Diana and I are off camping later this year and I needed a pot large enough to make “tea for two”. It is made from titanium so it is light enough to carry backpacking if I want to cook a larger meal.
The seams on my old silk sleeping had started to fail after over 15 years of service. I had repaired it several times but the silk was still giving way.
Jeremy and Michael bought this replacement for me for Christmas. It weighs less than the old one at 128g against 153g but is longer at 185cm.
