Hawes, Day three

We slept in today, so we had a big breakfast as it was getting on for lunch time before we were sorted. My feet were not too bad, so we went into town for the market and hopefully, fish and chips later.

We spotted a flyer for the Little White Bus and a trip to Skipton, it was going the following morning. Tickets were available from the community office, which turned out to be the library and as the weather forecast was not good for tomorrow, we bought a couple.

After walking round the market for a while, we got chip buttys and wandered up to the Wensleydale creamery, where we bought some cheese and beer. Then it started to rain, so we headed to he pubs for shelter and my feet were really hurting again by then anyway.

There are three pubs in a row, The Old Board, The Crown Hotel and The Fountain, we chose the Fountain as we prefer it for sitting inside. While we we were drinking, Dot read the drinks offers and found the Bacardi was on offer, so for the next round Dot had a short. We also moved outside as the sun was back out, a family started to tell us a story about their dog, it went on and on, well I almost lost the will to live, thankful their lift arrived just in time.


We ended up in the middle of the three pubs the Fountain (the one that nobody was serving in two days ago) and wouldn't you know it, it was cheaper by far than the other two. The selection of beers was almost the same in all three anyway. The rain even allowed us to have a seat outside for a while but when it cooled down we moved back inside


I was poorly during the night with stomach cramps and that along with the noise from the heavy rain, I didn't manage to get much sleep at all.
