Back at the tent I made a brew and settled down with the sausage roll and sandwich I'd just got then after an hour spent with my book I set out to visit my friends Ken and Shelagh who lived just a couple of miles away. I wasn't sure if they would be in but they were, and I spent a very pleasant couple of hours in their company before driving back to the camping fields. Some of my camping friends were leaving very early the following morning so I stopped for a chat with them for a while then finally went back across the fields to my own tent.
As the daylight faded I took Sophie and Poppie for a walk round the top end of the field then once they were tucked in their beds in the back of the van I made preparations to get into my own bed - and it was when I checked my step counter that I got quite a surprise. Even though my actual step challenge had finished two days previously I was still using the counter, and with the combination of walking across the camping fields and round the show ground plus my walk along the canal I'd done a total distance of six miles that day and a staggering 21,339 steps!
