Yesterday was quite rain sodden so it was with a stifled “phew” when the sun shone for us this morning. After taking leave of Mick and thanking him and Marion for their generosity we set out once more. Each day that we have travelled the terrain seems to have become more and more level, making the pack seem lighter and lighter.
Our destination was Perseverance Cottage at Orleton which turned out to be a self contained cottage in the garden of a rather nice house. Having dumped the packs we decided to go for a stroll aroud Orleton and to see if there might be a village shop etc. The shop was shut but the Boot Inn looked very friendly so we decided to eat there.
One of the peculiarities of Orleton was the complete lack of a mobile signal anywhere, odd these days.
