Sunday was a far more energetic day! Those of us who weren't hungover rose bright and early, enjoying a hearty breakfast in our B&B before setting off for the hills. Parking at the Cat and Fiddle pub, we struck out across the moors, singing songs in Esperanto to keep our spirits up. After a pleasant stroll along the banks of Errwood Reservoir, the path became more strenuous and we climbed steeply uphill in an attempt to reach Shining Tor, the highest point in Cheshire.
I'm happy to report that we made it in the end, and the weather held up better than during last year's JEB meet-up in the flooded Stratford-upon-Avon! Whilst it's a shame that more people couldn't make it, it was a very enjoyable weekend and I'm pleased to report that Esperanto was spoken almost exclusively throughout. JEB are open to suggestions for future meet-ups, which generally take place on a quarterly basis.
