Day 25 - BANNATYN'ED IN DURHAM!
My 2nd rest day today was marked by a 7.20am lie in and it felt funny waking up in my twin room with mum!! (Funny but nice!) We checked the weather and were pleased to see a good deal of sunshine and decided to get up and get going for our stroll in Shincliffe and following our 40p route map we bought yesterday.
We walked the 2 miles to our starting point for our walk in Shincliffe and decided to follow Walk number 5 which was the boundary walk around the Parish. This treasure map was quite easy to follow and took us through the village, along the river, through woodland and across fields. After a few hours mum decided to head back to the Seven Stars Public House (our starting point) and i crossed over the A1/M to just stretch out my legs a little further (and also to look longingly at the most major road that could actually take me to within 5 miles of my front door!!) Mum and i then actually met up within 10 minutes of each other as mum went on her own little detour on her 'direct easy route' back to the pub!
Oh and a huge thank you to my Big sister Sue who has added another £5 donation to Grove House today to enable me to reach my Full Target....... Please feel free to still keep donating though if there is anyone still reading this that hasnt yet managed to contribute...!! :) It is all such a great and worthwhile cause and i certainly have had the blisters to prove my commitment!
