7 Aug 2013 – North York Moors
Wed 7Aug 2013 – Day 12 Danby Wiske – Ingleby Cross 11m/17.7km 0700-1300hrs with stops including a meal at the Exelby Service Cafe on A19
Road walk out of Danby Wiske with a big clear Coast to Coast sign in red by a lone tree. Passing Oaktree Hill with the synagogue on the corner of A167, the first seen on this trail! Again the sun ray is showing me the path today.
Again into farmland and gravel roads make it more a stroll then hike!
One of the farms sure has a good sense of humour with their stile 🙂 Concrete stairs to cross the railway lines. Never ASSUME or you will make as ASS of U and ME 🙂 🙂
Longlands Farm, my favourite car and what a beautiful colour, at Grinkle Carr.
A cafe by the gas pump and seeing the pix on the wall, one would guess the main occupation of the clients who frequent here. Stopped to have eggs and beacon and my first Pesi after 4hrs of strolling! Also needing the fuel to attempt the most dangerous road crossing on the A19. Pix was taken only after being safe and sound across. Considering then you just walked from the lovely lane with the trees and suddenly face with the traffic, glad that there was food and caffeine in the body!!
Heading into Ingleby Arncliffe passing by Homeland with a flag where the biggest goose was in sight, probably getting ready for Christmas…
Road signs that show that I am on the correct way to Ingleby Cross, the WaterTower and a nut waiting for another nut here in the Blue Bell Inn.
Today has been another perfect day with time to chat to other fellow thru’ hikers and get their names – Jo, Robbie and their dog Worceste; Dorothy&Malcom, Phil and Dee&David. Thank you all you lovely people for crossing paths…
