More of our party decide that they can’t hack another day in the rain, so we are down to the last 5 – me, mum, Tom, Ray and Ellen. On with the waterproofs, after loading our panniers into Clare’s car (thanks!) so at least we don’t have lots of extra weight to carry. Today the forecast is for RAIN RAIN RAIN and more RAIN zero hours of sunshine ! More of Route 21 – some beautiful bits of countryside – especially the valley where Woldingham School nestles – it was a lovely 3 mile downhill run after a big muddy climb up a track. More ups and downs over the North Downs Way, and finally getting almost to Greenwich to pick up our bags from Clare.
Tea and crumpets with strawberries and jaffa cakes were waiting to greet us before our final bit of the journey home. Arrived back at 8pm, it was dark and still raining and we were covered from head to foot in mud – my clock said 378K in total… Very glad to be home, with a lovely supper waiting of tempura (my favourite meal!) to celebrate the end to a great journey!
