We were able to make the most of a lovely sunny day and re-visited one of our favourite walks along the banks of the River Lune from Lancaster. I say favourite because it is flat and has two cafes selling bacon sandwiches placed at strategic intervals. For a bit of variety we left the usual path and walked across some pretty damp and muddy fields. It was about ten miles from start to finish and by the end we were still feeling pretty good.
For those of you who know Lancaster we started at the Quays and followed the Millennium Cycle Path to Caton. The river is still very full after the heavy rain of last weekend and many of the fields are waterlogged or covered by standing water. The views were good in the cold air.

All in all, an excellent walk. By the time we got back to Lancaster the sun was going down and a thick fog developed – which makes it even better knowing that we got the best of the day.
