- Having 2 days in Deal. Visiting the small but beautifully formed local museum and being given a tour of Deal by my very attentive host, yet another kind and generous member of Kent Search and Rescue.
- The walk through the National Trust’s White Cliffs of Dover. Exactly the sort of trail I love; undulating, slightly challenging underfoot due to uneven nature, and stunning views. My trail running shoes were made for this and it felt great.
- The exceptional support given to me by local litter picking gurus, Eric and Thelma, who not only invited me to stay for a few nights, allowing me to walk with just a day sack rather than my 10-11kg 50l jobbie, but drove me to the start points and collected me at the end.
- Being bought a cup of tea and a cake in the National Trust’s lighthouse tea shop near Dover by 2 ladies I bumped into and got talking to.
- None 🙂
