On Thursday, I paddled past Tynemouth and Sunderland, and stopped at Seaham. Yesterday was very wet and windy, and today I didn’t fancy battling a headwind, so I’ve been resting and recharging my batteries in Tonia’s Cafe.
All ready to continue south tomorrow. It is definitely feeling autumnal now.
Progress seemed very slow as I paddled into a headwind all day, but I was glad to find a nice patch of grass to camp on just north of Newbiggin by the sea.
There were very strong winds over the weekend and I stayed on the beach, but today it was much calmer and there was a beautiful sunrise.
Except for a coupler of squalls, it was mostly calm on the water. A couple of porpoises popped up when I stopped for lunch. I landed on a lovely beach in Embleton Bay with great views of Dunstanburgh Castle.
