Tea and Cake in Cold Kirby

To celebrate Keith's Giant Birthday, around 32 of us assembled last night at Helmsley Youth Hostel.

Today Keith chose to celebrate his graduation to advanced years by walking the flattish 29km section of the Cleveland Way from Osmotherley to Helmsley. Twelve of us were conned into joining him on the basis that it was only 25km.

Cloudy skies and morning mist gave way eventually to blue skies as we rounded Sutton Bank.

Mud, mud, glorious mud!

Eventually we passed Rievaulx and started the descent to Helmsley, speeding past the castle (pictured) as the promise of a pot of tea and Sue W's tiffin beckoned.

It had taken seven and a half hours. A really enjoyable walk in fine company.

Corks are now popping.
