22.5 Km from St Bees to Ennerdale Bridge
We ate breakfast at 7:30; Brent had the full English breakfast--one of the better ones on the way--and I had tasty creamy British porridge. Porridge came to be an important staple to our breakfast diet, and we ate a lot of good porridge! The Brits eat theirs with golden syrup (corn syrup) and we often had to ask for brown sugar if we wanted it.
We stayed at the Fox and Hounds Inn in Ennerdale. It was a clean but not fancy place. We had supper there, I ordered lamb, which was quite tasty and inexpensive. We met up with Gordon and Charlene, a retired couple who live on an island off the coast of BC, and who we had stayed with at the Abbey Farm House. We had supper with them and chatted. They were very friendly and interested in all our life plans, and had all kinds of architect and academic connections. We would see them throughout the hike until we left them behind in Patterdale.
