I've had a lovely break - visiting York, Howarth and Orkney.
The central part of my holiday was the St Magnus Way Pilgrimage in Orkney - some 55 miles across beautiful countryside with coastal and inland views, varied terrain and not too much mud!
The big surprise was the medal we were awarded at the end - shown above. Isn't it beautiful?
I return home rested, refreshed, several pounds heavier (too much amazing home-cooked food) and looking forward to what the autumn will bring.
More bloggage in due course, but as I have a meeting this evening and a (family) funeral tomorrow need to get on!
