Hereford to Fownhope 8.8 mls Ascent 337 ft Miles so far: 168.2   4 comments

Hereford - Fownhope

Both feel so much better today after a day off :-). Shot off early so that we could get the 07:58 bus into Hereford and then found that we even had time for a coffee in Costa  whilst we watched Hereford waking up before our standard 09:00 start. An excellent way to start the day. Appreciated Hereford a lot more today as we walked through it on the Wye Valley Walk and I think we both walked a bit quicker and with a spring in our step. An absolutely glorious day far walking and plenty of the route was down by the river today and because we covered the ground so much quicker we were once again able to have a leisurely lunch lying back with Classic FM. Even better, when we got to Fownhope about 13:30 there were two pubs open so we could sit with a drink whilst waiting for a bus back to the campsite. Sigh, if only all walking days were like this……….
