Day 20– Douglas to Strathaven
I started the day with dry clothing, boots and kit. Not for long though. Persistent rain all day with the back roads under an inch of water in places.
The worse thing was the strong winds – oh and also the gradients, frozen hands and wet feet. 16 miles of it. Done. I did it.
Now just a day and a half to go. Kusumeh and I spent hours this evening sorting out the detail of the next three days.
And I may have some company tomorrow which will be lovely after the last three days.
My friend lifted my spirits in the evening too. Film maker Nick Edwards has made a beautiful and moving film inspired by Dorothea’s song. We posted this wonderful song about Clarion a few days ago and are hugely grateful to Dorothea Linder for the lyrics and composer Jo Collins for the music. Watch to the end!
