Wonderful day. Sunny but strong breeze kept us cool. Passed the Nine Standards and wandered over the North York Moors. Missed a turn but passed Amanda Owen’s Yorkshire Shepherdess Ravenseat Farm. Apparently she is famous in these parts. As per another couple she was a former model who bought the farm and proceeded to have nine children and write books. They sell goodies to walkers and tourists but were closed. The couple we spoke with had driven 75km for their cream cheese! Met a nice couple from New Zealand we walked with awhile. Had lunch bunkered down from wind in a gun blind. Followed a beautiful river into Keld. Now enjoying a beer at the Keld Lodge before a 15 minute walk down road to our B&B.
