I'm not quite as bowled over by Julia as everyone else seems to be. I like many of the programs because of the photography but she just doesn't come across to me as a "real" walker"! I sometimes wonder whether she does the complete walk at all, or just short stretches for the film crew!
For example, I've just watched the 4th instalment of her C2C series. She appeared to switch between a blue and a white jacket at least two or three times. The only explanation I can think of is that she didn't do it in one session at all but did different bits at different times. Me cynical? Never!
There was also a nice picture of the footbridge at Muker early in the programme, even though she took the high level route!
She also made a comment elsewhere giving her view that Catbells was popular because of its "proximity to Windermere" - leaving me feeling even less convinced by her!
And when I read her comment above about Catbells being popular because of its "proximity to Windermere", I felt even less convinced by her!
Of course, this is probably blasphemy to her many fans...!
