We started off in forest again, pine forest this time, and wound our way along through the trees. Both horses felt great, they got plenty of good hay the night before and seemed very content in the morning - they were both lying down having a snooze when we arrived. We are all old hands at fording streams now, and Flurry seems to be over his fear of waterfalls as he sploshed through this ford without turning a hair.

We stopped for a very meagre lunch. It was a bank holiday here and all of the shops were closed, so we scraped out the bottom of our saddle bags and found an apple, three biscuits (in bits), four squares of chocolate and half a packet of trail mix. We shared it out and ate overlooking a village, while the horses cropped grass beside us.
|There's a lake there somewhere, really!|
Here's the Everytrail map. We covered a total of 27.4km today.
