Rest day 3 Kendal
Having completed my laundry duties on the day I arrived into Kendal, to give the clothes more opportunity to dry, today rest day 3 was going to be a proper rest day. Any thoughts about going into the Lakes were to be dismissed, instead shopping in Kendal, with the knowledge that anything brought would have to be carried. First was a memory stick, to stop me forgetting things, no, I noticed the YHA had a computer with a SD card reader, this way I have backed up my photo's so I am protected against any mishaps which may happen. Next coffee break, Costa's was full so I had a MacCoffee, yuk, but gave me, chance to send some mails. Next some new headphones, yes the pair I had been given weren't the most comfortable, but a life saver these last days, see if these new ones last to the end of the walk? A replacement 2 litre dry bag to replace the one which has been eaten by a spill of my insect repellent, yep you heard that right, no wonder it scares the insects away, what does it do to skin, will find out. Brought a second micro fleece as I often wear the Berghaus one during the day and to go out in on the night as the weather has been reasonable mild. So even I have been smelling myself, never a good sign. The one brought from the Mountain Hardware shop is both light and cheap, always a winning combination, plus had a great chat with the assistant manager about the walk, says he may try the walk himself, just do it! Had a sausage roll from Greggs, my big weakness. Off out on the town tonight, catching a movie and a meal, "Billy no mates hits Kendal". Have posted a couple of photo's from previous days, today. Whilst, backing up my photo' noticed I have taken 500+ since losing my camera. Given I am going back to capture them (+100) and I've got 3.5 weeks to go, I'll have enough for a great slide show (estimate 1500 photo's, including one of the "Queen Hotel" - arrh!!!!). Invites to be sent out on my return. I'll make sure your all not busy that evening, know you won't wanna miss it!
