I've had my eye on this route for a while, and finally, after a spell of bad weather and unfortunate circumstances that prevented me from doing so, I finally completed the route on the first weekend in August. And very enjoyable it was too.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
