After a bit of a break…

London to Weymouth now filmed and heading on down to Land’s End in 2014 before linking the South Coast film to the Welsh Coastline. Site is being updated presently, time permitting, so access to films from different areas should be easier.LulworthKimmeridge-Ledges

It’s not what you do, its the way you have to do again it several times over….

In a freak accident, a moment of lapse, some seemingly unneeded files were deleted from the desktop -life continued, the earth turned, summer rolled on, and then the Trash was emptied.

The missing 8o miles of film was not detected until this week, a search of the internet and with international exchange being what it is, I parted with a good slice of my hard-earned for a piece of software that professed to make this waking nightmare disappear like early morning mist on a sunny day.  Some files were recovered, even so, with 30 miles still missing I’m on track for another visit to the Llyn Peninsula this weekend, and two short coastal sections of Anglesea at Rhosneigr again which are unwatchable. Had planned rather to be down on the south coast where I’ve only filmed from Kent and East Sussex as far as Worthing this year (Cornwall planned over the winter and into next summer). Have recordings, have photo’s of the Llyn all the way to Caernavon -just no sign of the films. So I just see it as another part of the journey and put it down to experience.

Colwyn Bay to Chester

Finished filming the Welsh Coast Path! Every inch of the 870 miles -and genuinely really sad to see it go, didn’t really want it to end to be honest. Words defy description, simply amazing will suffice. The last dash to Chester felt herculean, started at 2pm in the afternoon -so it was a very late start, but it was mainly cycling and cycle route, certainly from Colwyn Bay to Rhyl and on to Prestatyn. Beach walking from there to Flint, and then biking intermittently down to Chester. Support crew was amazing, Jo and Jeanie we’re on board for this last stretch so with 5% battery left on my phone at 8.15 I announced “I was going for it!” And I’d see them in Chester’, how they found me I’ll never know. Cycling beside the Dee estuary pacing the last twelve miles into Chester at a lick, doing the stretch about half an hour, where I crossed the line a mile out of town in the dark, at 8.46pm on Friday night on the 23rd of August, exhausted and exhilarated.  Celebrated by sitting outside the Volkswagen dealership where the path starts eating cold pizza and drinking a root beer with Jo and Jeanie in the Cafe de Wheels, and it felt pretty good.  38 miles
