Hadrian's Wall Path - Day 2 - 16 miles

Hadrian's Wall Path - Day 2 - 16 miles

 Finally starting on our trail through the pastures. Soon this would be our daily view!

Another great day on the trail. This is what I had in mind when I pictured the Path. A black soil track winding it's way through English farmland, the ground undulating up and down gracefully as we weave our way west. Gone is the city and the noise and the people. Here is the quiet and the field. And the sheep of course. 

 We walked through loads and loads of sheep pastures and goat pastures. We spent a lot of time yelling at the lil sheeps because sometimes they would yell back.

Last night we stayed at a perfect little B&B called Houghton North Farm, an aptly named little farm house that wanted for nothing. Time machine beds, a wonderfully high pressure shower, and a breakfast expertly prepared by the best host and someone we came to describe as a "trail Mom," Paula. Between her masterful hospitality and the company of about a half dozen farm dogs of various breed but uniform cuteness, we were about as happy as any trekkers could hope to be. 

 Our neighbor dog. She eventually ended up sitting on her mom dog. When we woke up there was a small herd of wiry little pups running around the farm.

With such an auspicious start to the morning, we loaded our packs and headed out onto a toasty but spectacular day. Roughly 8 hours of the aforementioned countryside led us into the tiny village of Chollerford, where we pitched a tent for the evening. We're tired but happy, well fed and ready for sleep.  

 Our tent area for the night. We then walked 1/2 mile to the local pub to eat our weight in fish and chips before heading back to freeze next to the river.

Tomorrow takes us through the most anticipated section of the trek, but I'll have more to say then.
