On Monday, I left Dungeness early in the morning to pass the Lydd Range before it opened. Conditions were a bit choppier than expected, so I didn’t take any pictures, and I had a headwind the whole way, so I was pretty exhausted by the time I was off the water.
I’m now at Norman’s Bay a little bit before Eastbourne. I couldn’t land where I had planned as surf dumping on the beach looked too ferocious, so carried on another mile down the coast, until I found a spot where a large groyne provided a little bit of shelter. As luck would have it, there was a campsite right where I landed, so I’ve been enjoying hot showers and clean laundry.
The wind is ferocious today, but the forecast looks good for the next few days, so I’m hoping to cover some more miles.
