FullSizeRenderwednesday was unexpectedly sunny (again) which was a bonus. A much easier day of walking, only 5 miles, which improved the mood of the teen. He was getting quite into the spirit of things actually, taking photographs of the scenery – and wait for it- when we had a boring bit of road to walk along , singing songs!!!!

here are a few snaps of the day. (Steel rig to housesteads to vindolanda)


A passer by kindly took a picture of the threee of us – had to cut his thumb off ! ( the picture)


The tree is in ‘sycamore gap’ and famous because they shot the opening scenes of ‘Robin Hood prince of thieves’ here. It’s only 300 miles to Sherwood Forest!


The staineway – an original roman road that ran parallel to Hadrians wall across the width of England.


Vindolanda has an amazing collection of artefacts – including hundreds of shoes! Definitely worth a visit. The sophistication of clothes, jewellery and pottery suggest that people haven’t changed much in 2000 years!


About mawil1

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.
