N=10 It were w=hot-and-sunny
Some bits of path had recovered from the wet winter, some hadn’t. :(
There were some patches of bluebells but not enough to induce rapturous "ooh"s. At least, not in me.But then, I rarely display pleasure.
There seemed to be a competition amongst subgroups to see who could get the most lost. I’m not sure who won. Maybe the people we never saw again. I myself only managed a minor deflection.
Lunch seemed to go down well in the Red Lion’s garden. Unfortunately so did the drinks. This made the notoriously muddy post-prandial bridleway even more of a challenge. Damn you Mr Fuller! Damn your beer!
Along the way, we made friends with some stripy cows and said hello to a few sheep.
Good day out.

Well, if the Stripy One (the Tiger, not the cow) will drink the strongest beer on offer what can he expect.

I also counted ten in our group, but there was also a group of three, and at least one further pair, doing the walk independently.
