Day 8 The Great Adventure

June 17, 2018



Nice easy, light day today which started off on small roads with a nice detour on a beautiful forestry track that gave Flix and Amadeus a chance for a gallop and a jump! The A team forged ahead, through the gorse as our path finders!

We then ended up on a slightly bigger road than we had expected so we used the cycle path that meandered alongside which no one seemed to mind as it was an absolute godsend for keeping us safe of the road!

Thank you to all of the cars and lorries who slowed for us without us asking and even though we were a way from the road including the many Travis Perkins and Pat Munro ones we passed today who all gave us a wide birth!

We are now staying with the lovely Suzanne and Ken who have let us camp and pen the horses in their field! We’ve had a great chat with them both and met Lindsay who keeps her horse here! We just love how many amazing people we have got to know on this trip! We are so grateful to everyone for their amazing generosity!
