Another wonderful sunny morning and although I am a bit sore from yesterday’s hike up the step like mountain I have decided do another hike today.
On the way to the starting point stopped here with my muffin and orange juice
I found the start of the hike to Angle Tarn and this I where I am heading...
This was a bit easier than yesterday as it is a flat path although up hill....with spectacular views
Anotherbhiker at the start of the trail..
Up I go...
I could feel that I was not feeling great still coughing and short of breath and after about 75 minutes I decided to take a break ..I had seen no one on the trail and I really felt tired and weak......a few minutes later a young lady came down the trail and she told me I only had about another ten minutes to get to the summit and that was the inspiration I needed...
Back up and made it to the top and boy was it worth it...
Had my lunch and then a sleep, yes a 💤.......it was blistering hot and I felt rested when I woke up..
The return was easy especially as I had borrowed my land ladies trekking pole.....views on the way down..
So it was about five miles with an elevation gain of 1500 feet and a real good work out but I have already decided no hiking tomorrow.
I did not mention it before but Janet got quite sick last Monday think she picked up a bug on the flight back from Malta anyway she had a really bad cold and went to the doctor who sent her to the hospital where she had a battery of tests and was told she has a mild case of pneumonia and was later sent home.
Her and Malc were to leave today for five days in Belgium for a brass band tour but very wisely she had decided not to go and urged Malc to still go which he did.
I talked to Janet tonight and she is feeling slightly better with the medication so that is great news!!!
