We got home safe and sound, completely uneventfully, which is always fine with us.

But we still dream of walking in England. I anticipated some strenuous walking – although we did it all! – and hoped it would be as lovely as we remembered – it was! My favorites were the Dales, of course, and the Moors with all those nesting birds, But what I didn’t expect were all the lovely friendships along the way. That part was special. Also all the Jubilee preparations.

The treat at the end was meeting you, of course. Thank you for everything!
