Day 1 - Lowestoft to St Bees Head

From Reedham Ferry- TG 40540 01450

A great day's walking once clear of Lowestoft. Much variation on good paths. Archetypal English country villages, several tea shops, and a grand finale crossing on the Reedham Ferry to the pub and camp site directly on the other side. Charges a bit steep at £12. I intend to eat in the pub tonight- report to follow.

What a contrast our villages are with the French which all look like deserted film sets from years ago, and even if there is a shop or bar it is generally closed. Our villages actually have people living in them even if they are rich commuters.
This has been a good start to the walk and if it keeps up I think it will be rewarding. Of course the weather has been kind today.

This sounds as though it will be a delightful trip. Are you planning to come up to Scotland any time soon?

Afoot in the Hills - I am hoping to go to the far north with caravan sometime after the end of school hols and before the clocks alter.
