Today was a day of two halves, that ended with a splash.
We began with mild peril, as we climbed to the Saddle on Bunster Hill and surveyed in wonder the landscape around us.
We watched a shepherd work his dogs in a field below; it was as if they were in miniature. Next, we traversed the north side of Bunster, gradually climbing up to a point almost as high as Thorpe Cloud, which we had climbed on Tuesday evening. It was hard work, but worth it, not just for the views, but also the sense of achievement.
Finally, having safely reached the river, we settled to a very well deserved lunch below Ilam Rock.
