Cotswold Edge and Cam Long Down 7 October 18

Following a day of rain on the Saturday, Sunday dawned bright and sunny.

We got rained on briefly but otherwise the weather was ideal for walking. Cathy kept the conversation flowing even during two challenging hill climbs. Thanks to Roddy for tea & toasted buns at his home.
