The 2011 Challenge, day 6: Melgarve to Newtonmore (2)
I made steady progress, and reached Garva Bridge in good time. I took this photograph after crossing Garva Bridge, looking back the way I had come.
I had not yet caught up with Nicole, but it wasn't long before I sighted her, and I finally fell in beside her between Garvamore and Sherramore. She was anxious that I shouldn't be slowed down by her pace - but I said that was a decision for me, and I was happy to walk at this pace. So we walked together and chatted, and took a break for refreshment by the dykes that control the River Shira as it flows into the lochan above the Spey Dam.
