The Viking Way (Part 2)

May 2017.
Completing the Viking Way - this time starting at the Humber Bridge and walking down through the Lincolnshire Wolds to finish in Lincoln.
In stark contrast to last year we were 'blessed' with sweltering heat for the whole 6 days. The heat, combined with a significant proportion of road walking meant sore feet for several days. Also, the terrain was not as varied as last year - good walking, but a bit monotonous at times.
We were joined on the first day by my brother Marc and his wife Nic - a pleasant change for us to have company.
Miss B'z - the best place in Barnetby for a fresh roll ... and cake ...
