So the intrepid explorers returned triumphant after their 3 Peaks Challenge. All proudly clutching their certificates of achievement and all remarkably unscathed. Photographs show magnificent views, proud climbers at the top of each peak and relieved faces enjoying a well earned pint at the pub conveniently situated at the end! They had an amazing time. The weather was perfect, dry, bright and with a gentle breeze, although at the top of the first peak they were still climbing through snow!
|Any Harry Potter fans out there recognise this bridge?|
|Phew, it's over. Thirsty work all this mountaineering!|
Responses to having done it varied from muttering about trying Kilimanjaro now (J), signing up for Race for Life next month (R) and "it was great, but I'm too old to do anything like that again (P). 55 year old knees complain more than 23 and 26 year old ones!
So today J has gone back to Edinburgh and we are back to being 3 again. I'm not sure who's sulking the most, me or the dog.
