Whilst our friends in the south of England were enjoying a heatwave, Sue and I found ourselves in a storm in Newtonmore. The River Calder stayed confined within its banks, but in the main valley the same could not be said for the River Spey.
We were lucky with the Aviemore parkrun. Nearby runs had been cancelled due to flooding, and the route to our start would soon be inundated. Following the rainy run, and after leisurely coffees in Aviemore, we returned to the Balavil Hotel in Newtonmore for lunch.
We decided that a visit to Adrian was in order, Ali being down in Staffordshire with Mick and Gayle, doing 'Challenge' stuff. Entries for the 2024 TGO Challenge opened on 1 October, creating much work for the Co-Ordinators.
So we set off down the Main Street, past Newtonmore Hall.
