A group of ramblers were waiting for their coach. All were dressed correctly. Good stout walking boots, thick woolly socks spilling over the top of them. Khaki trousers, brushed soft cotton and green zip up to the neck fleeces.
Underneath layers for when the sun heated up and scarves to protect their necks; with hats ranging from seaside floppy canvas to cowboy replicas. Bursting back packs and a few well handled walking sticks were on show as well.
The age ranges were a little worrying though especially to a lay person in walking terms. Some of them looked as if they wouldn’t be able to make it up two flights of stairs let alone a hike; however they were enthusiastic and excited.
They were going on a day hike to Haworth in Yorkshire that is until they realised that they were waiting in the wrong place for their coach! Fortunately Crocodile Dundee arrived to explain where they had gone wrong.
"You need to go left, then right and then left again" he told them pointing vaguely into the distance. Then he set off at a spanking pace with the muted words, “Just going to use the facilities at the bus station.”
Hopefully they didn’t follow him there!
So armed with these new instructions they had to hot foot it to the correct meeting place a few blocks away. Not a good advertisement for ‘wanna’ be ramblers! I hope they made it!
Thought for the day: If you are facing in the right direction, all you have to do is keep on walking!
