"No thanks, I've got one" she replied, "and anyway I've printed out the directions!"
Unfortunately a list of Google maps directions from A to B only work if you actually start at A ... and if the list includes place names on the way as well as road numbers ... and if you have a compass ... and perhaps a map ...
"Erm, do you have a map? I'm struggling to work out where we are on this list!"
"No. There are bound to be signs"
Only the signs seemed few and far between, almost as if the locals didn't want any tourists!
"I'm sure we've been past those cows before"
"Perhaps we should have turned left back there after all ..."
"Do you want to turn around or shall we just see what happens?"
"Let's just see ..."
We did see Castleton (along with a lot more Derbyshire countryside than we'd anticipated) and what's more, we were still smiling when we got there:
On the hunt for lunch we snapped a few fellow tourists ...

|#9 A Bakery|
|#5 A Rack Of Postcards|
|#9 A Rural Landscape|
After that, we knew what to expect on the final leg of the journey from C to D ... but by now I'd almost got the hang of Lesley's smartphone and we only got lost twice or three times! Our hotel happened to tick off another Scavenger Hunt item by being close to:
|#9 A Parade|
|#18 A Waterfall|
...one of whom was very interested in Lesley's camera:

.. before ending our jaunt by meeting up for a meal with our scrappy friend Nat:
P.S. I found a handy place to store those Google maps directions before heading home and we didn't get lost once!!
