Halfway there!

Ian here - Elizabeth has asked me to report that, after six days of walking and one rest day, she and her friend have reached Knighton, the halfway point on her south-north trek up the Offa's Dyke trail.
Fortunately, the weather has been fantastic - if anything too hot and sunny (I certainly thought so when I accompanied them on their first day). The second half could be 'interesting' as the weather is now definitely on the change and quite a bit of rain is heading their way.
I shall leave E to tell her own stories about blisters, insect bites, prickly heat, etc. Suffice it to say that I am very proud of her achievement and looking forward to joining her in a week's time for a triumphal march into Prestatyn.

  5. Thank you for the update- I've been wondering how the walk was going.

    Here's hoping that the hardest part is behind her and the way to the finish is easy. And that the weather stays decent and a little cooler.

  13. A pity the weather couldn't compromise and be reasonable throughout but I suppose it will all add to the variety of the adventure. When you speak you can tell her lots of folk are waiting for the stories of her walk and wish her well for the second half.

  18. I've been thinking of her this week - it was very hot for walking, but the last twenty-four hours has seen constant rain here on the west Wales coast. Well done Elizabeth - keep going.
