The penultimate stretch of the coast path beckons, packing and planning is underway. It took me a few hours just to find everything that had been stuffed away in the cupboard since last year.
After such a gap in the project I feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation. I am not sure I am as fit as I was on the last two stints, but as they say "the best training for walking - is walking"
It will be good to be back out again to reconnect with the landscape, the connection is much stronger for me when I stay out for prolonged periods of time. So with pencils sharpened, boots waxed, waterproofs packed (just in case!!) off we go ... only 140 miles left.
