Friday 27 May 2022 - The End of Another TGO Challenge

Another walk to the fruit farm found us trying to identify the hedgerow flowers:

Ribwort plantain
Field chickweed
Common daisy 
Scots broom
Common hawthorn
Cow parsley
Tuberous comfrey
Field forget-me-not 
Bulbous buttercup
Red stem storksbill

The fruit farm's cafe was quiet this morning, until half a dozen Challengers, led by Rob Slade, erupted from the gloomy interior.

The group disappeared into the jungle at the end of a dead end track, whilst Sue and I sourced some strawberry punnets to bring back to Control.

We had got ahead of the errant party by the time they reached Kinnaber Links, on the top of a huge sand dune. Photos were taken.

Then, the closest you can get to a scree run in the UK these days.

More photos with everyone's camera except mine, then Sue took this picture of me and Rob marching up the beach towards Montrose.

Then more socialising with many good friends, old and new, and the final dinner of the event.

Graham receives an award for his 30th crossing.

Heather celebrates her 10th crossing.
