Then it was time to wade the stream, before climbing Codsdon Hill to the beacon, well, pile of rocks, at the top.
Thence to Wild Tor and Watern Tor, or as I will here after refer to it, “Monkey Rocks” due to this wonderful creation. Can you see the monkey’s face in the middle pile of rocks?As the shadows lengthened, it was time to find a flat spot to stop for the night.
Just before it got properly dark I took a compass bearing to next morning’s destination, which proved to be a very good move, as early next morning, just as the sun was rising, there was no pretty maiden to be seen. But there was a lot of fog.
After walking across the moor yesterday, it was great to walk through the woods, on my way to a lakeside breakfast. Breakfast was the highly recommended mixture of muesli and instant hot chocolate powder, truly manna from heaven.
Over Rippator back to the ford I crossed on day one, which proved super useful in cleaning my shoes.
Nice clean shoes for the road back home.
