The send off…..
The folks of Kimbolton are so supportive. Several joined us for a blessing for the journey at St Andrew’s Church
and I was joined by a group of local Rotarians for the first 25 miles of the journey……of course, we fitted in an unscheduled coffee stop in St Neots, before the official stop at Bourn…..but then, what do you do if you are running ahead of schedule?
At the Abantu cafe in Bourn, I had to give my dear wife, Jenny, a big hug
….it’ll be 6 weeks before we see other again. Saying goodbye is hard….but meeting up again is much sweeter. She hasn’t (yet) changed the lock on the front door. For that, I am eternally grateful!
I write this 70 miles into my first 100 miles to Harwich, and the blessing worked! The wind has been supportive all day…….
