Raisdale to Glaisdale A long day of gale force winds, horizontal hailstones & rain. We received a real wetting today, but also some periods of sunshine. All arrived safely in Glaisdale & fit for the final 20 miles to Robin Hoods Bay tomorrow.
Whilst walking into Glaisdale a Coastguard Vehicle stopped & the Coastguard asked if we had seen the sea!! He was joking of course, but coming over the top of the moors we had a good sighting of sea & ships; a very encouraging sight & the adrenalin is starting to pump for our final walk tomorrow. We hope to be arriving in Robin Hoods Bay at approx. 5pm.
Met a new friend ‘Kent’ from Oregon, also eating with him tonight. Also walked with Tom all the way & Lisa from half way. Had a coffee (yes a coffee) in the Lion Inn to warm up & dry our trousers. The moors were black & weather worst day so far, & stronger winds forecast tomorrow hey ho!! The Coast to Coast ‘Sting in the Tail’!!
Looking forward to cockles by the sea, & a Wainwright celebration beer in Robin Hoods Bay.
Forever Eastward & South along the cliffs tomorrow. We’ll have to remember to stop at the cliffs!! Steve, Paul & Dave
