Saturday 1st January 2005, (Stanley).

Linda has kept her word and has been walking up the Nut daily, well she did miss one, and I have, and intend continuing, going up every second day.

We went for a drive to Smithton yesterday as Linda wanted to do some shopping and check the town out, but we decided that it wasn’t really the town we remembered. It certainly didn’t do anything for us this visit, and left us with the thought that it is probably not worth a revisit at any stage.

When somebody mentioned that we would notice the wind at Stanley they were certainly correct. Today was very windy, from the south, and very cold. It is not very common to see me sitting in the sun to get warm, but this was a must here today. This gave me a good chance to keep an eye on the Nut with the binoculars anyway.
