Thank you for your interest.
We have recently returned from Pembrokeshire where we intended continuing this epic trek from Freshwater East. But it was not to be. We both found it hard going, and I was near to collapse at the end of our first Walk to Manorbier. Regrettably we have decided to throw in the towel! We are bitterly disappointed that old age has won, but we can no longer manage the challenging walking the coast path demands. It's the steep downhills that are the killer, and we walk a lot more slowly than we used to.
We have a lot to be proud of. Since we started in 1998 we have walked nearly four thousand miles along the coast. During that time I have had five operations on my legs and Colin has had three on his bladder. We have had to contend with Foot & Mouth restrictions, financial problems when a mortgage got out of hand, bereavement and Covid restrictions. Still we carried on when we could, but all the time we were getting older.
But we haven't given in entirely. We are going to continue visiting all the access points along the coast in the right order until we get back to Bognor Regis. At each point we shall do a little walking if the terrain and weather conditions allow. I shall continue to write them up in my blog.
To all my readers, thank you for your interest in our venture.
