"Make the rain stop, pleaseeeeeeee. !!"
|Time||5 hours 29 mins|
Oh thank god…. for flat ground. I woke up and went though the routine, 4 Ibuprofen, 10cms of anesthetic gel into my back, and a very large toothpaste squeeze of Butt Butter to be applied liberally into areas no one should ever go. The stage was flat to start with, so good progress was made until the rain set in. Hour upon hour of dire pissy weather (not cold) Miles after miles of rain. It was a good job I haven’t touched a salad for days, I mean you dont want to risk that in weather like this.
There were 2 nasty digs before the end and then we sat in the local pub in Clun sampling all their pokey beers. Back at the hotel the salad rebellion continued. I had a steak, jimbo had a mixed grill (KUDOS) meat fest. Paul had a steak but he declined chips !!!!!!!!! and had something called a “Gratin Potato” .. I hope they liquidize the chips and add mayo ? even so its not right !!!.. We may make it over the bridge tomorrow… we shall see.
Looking back at todays route, we did sneak across the border into Wales a few times. There were no signs on the back roads that we were on and so didn't even notice. Although come to think of it there were a couple of road signs in both languages. Tomorrow we will definately be in the land of song.
MORE WORDS OF WISDOM FROM OUR DRIVER
Driver: Hey there are no hotels in Clun — you need to push on a bit more so we can get into an area
