Thankfully I can't beat your 35% rain! I usually walk my LDPs in April time and to date I have always been very lucky with the weather. You did well to complete the walk so many congratulations, at the start of my 1st LDP, the Pennine Way, a guy said to me that whether you complete it or not is in the head, excepting injury.

Very sorry to hear that May's shop (Aladdin's Cave) is up for sale, lets hope that the new owner will continue with the wonderful and friendly service she provides.
