day 5 – Kingsley to Rainhill
The generosity of strangers…
This bizarre mission I have set myself – getting Clarion to Cop 26 – is an experience of a lifetime. I am continuously knocked over by people’s generosity.
Yesterday afternoon we hadn’t sorted out a bed for the night, for me or for Clarion, then someone walking with us rang and friend and asked and Hey Presto! A bed and supper were offered, and my hosts, Steve and Alex spent hours ringing all their friends and asking them to join me today.
This evening we were also unsure where I would lay my head and a lovely woman who stopped in order to give me a donation, offered me hospitality.
Today we walked with the Bear standing and crossed the Runcorn Bridge. Maybe the first time a polar bear has crossed the Mersey?
