England Coast to Coast: Day 18 – The Final Day!

Yay! Hooray! Whoopee! This is me laughing and being giddy which is exactly what happened when I stepped on the beach of the North Sea at Robin Hood’s Bay today. I did it—walked across the whole of northern England- 192 miles. What a great feeling of accomplishment! But it was a long day and quite … Continue reading

England Coast to Coast: Day 17

Be careful what you ask for! I have mentioned several times how much I enjoyed the isolated freedom of being alone on the moors. Well nature arranged that for me today in a not so pleasant way, at least at first. First I have to start with the weather, because, well, this is England, and … Continue reading

But first, the weather report! Before beginning … Continue reading

England Coast to Coast: Day 12- Rest Day in Richmond

Today was the second of my two planned rest days. After slogging through the rain yesterday I was ready for a bit of rest! Richmond is a popular stop as it is a town full of history, lots of hotels and B&Bs, and restaurants. For the first time since Grasmere I did not set an … Continue reading
