January 2021 Morning Walk

It had snowed overnight so I decided to check out some interesting footpaths. Took the OS Explorer map 307 and camera with me and hoped it would not be too muddy.

Monday Walk Along Deerness Valley

13-14 mile walk to Durham and back, footpaths and the railway path were quite busy but the town very quiet. Despite running and jogging regularly I notice that I have no walking endurance whatsoever – muscles are aching. My walking boots are also too large so I need to buy a new pair. There was a small forest fire along the route, some people were calling the fire service so I didn’t hang around.

Started early after the breakfast, too early, when I was coming down the mountain when skies cleared. Reminded me of the 1995 film An Englishman who went up the hill and came down the mountain.Very balmy weather, Gulf stream, Irish sea and all that.
