I had the day off with Isabel today, and it was forecast to be dry so a morning walk somewhere was in order. Both MWIS and the Met Office forecast there to be hill fog in the Peak District, so I opted to leave my planned walk around the Roaches until another day. Instead we headed to Lyme Park, which I hadn't been to for many months.

It was a shame not to be able to see the Welsh hills in the distance as that is where I am planning on heading for my next couple of backpacking trips. I am planning on walking the Offa's Dyke path in much the same way as I did the Pennine Way, i.e. splitting it into several weekend or long weekend backpacks. Either at the end of this month, or early in February, I am planning on taking the train to Prestatyn one Saturday morning and walking to Llandegla over a couple of days. Then, probably in March, I'm going to return to Llandegla and walk to Welshpool.
