Day 200 (!) … After sheltering in the dunes at Mablethorpe during several days of gales, the wind dropped a bit today and I paddled to Gibraltar Point, just south of Skegness.
There was still a pretty strong crosswind while paddling today and I had to keep the boat pointed towards the beach all the way to avoid being blown too far offshore.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much more of this trip left. I’m now in a good position to cross The Wash to rejoin the river at King’s Lynn, although I’m not sure I want to do that during the headwind forecast for tomorrow.
(Thanks very much to the Kirkwood family for the latest donation – much appreciated).
I expect you will be very sad to actually finish your fantastic trip, just as Andy & Jane were…BUT it is a fantastic thing you have done! I have really enjoyed following your blog. I particularly admire your photographs and your determination to continue despite difficulties. Well done indeed!
hi- hope you had a good day and made it across the wash ok. There is a chap called Johnfon ukrivers website asking if you made it ok.
