A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

As did our journey of 84 miles last week - we walked the Hadrian's Wall Path from Bowness-On-Solway to Wallsend.

The path doesn't exactly follow the wall, which is now non-existent in many places.  However, the path does take in many historic sights and remains or Roman forts etc.

Day 1 took us from Bowness-On-Solway to Carlisle - taking us through Port Carlisle, Burgh-By-Sands, Beaumont and into Carlisle.

Burgh-By-Sands was a fascinating place - the local church is partly built out of stone from Hadrian's Wall itself, and is the place where Edward I died before being slung under a car park taken back to London.

Sunset over Bowness-On-Solway the evening before we started. 

The beginning of the walk. 

Not far to go :-)

First day was 14.5 miles - 69.5 to go!
