Whitehaven to Low Lawton

I awoke this morning to the news of a severe weather warning. Luckily for me the South of England seemed to be the worst affected and the winds weren't that bad for the first 13 miles to Lamplugh. After that, they seemed to die down all together or it could have been the fact that I was sheltered by the surrounding mountains.

Fortunately I had Katy on hand to supply me with food and drink every other mile. She seemed to enjoy herself in the countryside despite being 8 months pregnant.

The last 7 miles went very quickly as there was plenty of scenery to look at. I finished off in Low Lawton in what turned out to be quite a sunny afternoon.
