That trek up the road seem to go on for ever & was a bad move. [with] Marlene & Alan Harker [weather] A fine day with no wind & wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Coledale Round with Marlene & Alan Harker & the memorable thing we still laugh about today was the the pubs didn't open all day then & when we got into Braithwaite everything was closed & Marlene was so looking forward to a half of Shandy.
