Stunning Santorini ...

We are thoroughly enjoying our relax in Santorini ... The scenery is amazing, the food incredible and the weather is perfect! And did I mention the sunsets?  My sister Wendy and her husband Greg met us here on their way back from a turkey and we are spending 6 days here before heading home ... A great way to unwind and relax after that big walk!  We are staying in Oia on the tip if Santorini, away from the crowds, and it is stunning ....

Farewell London ....

We said our goodbyes to Robin Hoods Bay this morning, in the sunshine, and headed to York for a couple of hours this morning, before getting the train back to London, and managed to fit in a little bit of stitching on the train!  Had a lovely foot massage (essential after that big walk) and then a fantastic Greek dinner at our favourite Greek restaurant in London ... The Life Goddess .... All ready to head off to Santorini in be morning ....  Bring it on!!

Relaxing times ahead ...

Yesterday afternoon we walked into Robin Hoods Bay to complete our Coast to Coast walk across England!  Huge effort and interesting but I now have tired feet and legs!  We left the Irish Sea 17 days ago and were greeted by a very bleak and cold North Sea on arrival!  Great to get together last night with fellow walkers from around the world who we have met along the way.  Bottom photo shows our route!   Looking forward to heading back to London today and flying to Santorini tomorrow to relax!

One day ... 25km to go to Robin Hoods Bay!

Have just finished our second last day and are relaxing in the tiny village of Egton Bridge with a coffee!  We had a misty walk across the moors followed by a lovely walk through a forest to reach our destination today.   25km to walk tomorrow and we will have completed 302km across England!  Looking forward to celebrating with the fellow walkers we have met along the way tomorrow night!  Lots of stories to be told!

2 days to go ....

After walking 32kms today we are a little exhausted ... Up and down lots of hills!  We stayed in a gorgeous B and B last night just outside Osmotherley in the North Yorkshire Moors.  Beautiful scones and cake on arrival and amazing garden full of flowers!   Great walk this morning through forests and over pastures, then resting on top of a steep hill!  All is well and we are looking forward to tomorrow!

4 days to go ....

Can't believe we have only 4 days left to walk!  We are now walking in sunshine which is so lovely! Here are some photos of our last 2 days .... Beautiful little villages, gorgeous gardens and flowers, stunning old churches and blackberry picking along the hedgerows ... Enjoying this immensely!

Day 9 ... coast to coast walk

Day 9 finished and we have walked 21kms today in sunshine after 4 days of rain .... Such a blessing!  Here we are leaving Orton yesterday morning in all our wet weather gear, David at Franks Bridge, Tan Hill Inn, the highest inn in England where we stayed last night on the chilly Yorkshire Dales, and a rainbow spotted as we walked today through Langthwaite ... Such lovely walking in beautiful countryside ....
