Well, I say a little less brutal, the second half turned out to be a world class boggy yomp - my GriSports boots leaked like a sieve and I was lucky to escape without a severe case of Trench Foot (the boots are super comfortable but rubbish in the wet).
Anyway, back to the start, and the glorious drive in along St John's in the Vale.
The easy part...
And how often do you find the perfect picnic spot, precisely at dinner time?
The difficult bit...
|"Yeah, it looks a bit boggy but I think we'll be fine..."|

|"Get my good side!"|
|This was one of the drier sections...|
|Definitely new boots time!|
