Heading for the Grand Union Canal

Well yesterday was a big one. I set off from Newark at just after 9-o-clock after a good nights kip in a room above a very loud disco in the Broadway pub - walking all day is the best cure for insomnia. Thirteen and a half hours and 26 miles later I arrived in The Sugar Loaf in AB Kettleby where I met Sam, Matt and Alex. I've been enjoying their company and hospitality ever since and am about to set off to Melton and then, hopefully on to the  Grand Union Canal by the end of the day. I'm carrying a very fine packed lunch so with luck I'll make good progress.

All the best,

Love Ewen

Oh Wow Ewen you are making great progress! Maybe next year you could do the "London Marathon" after yesterday's treck?!!... only joking! When you have finished your pilgrim & back Home we would like to treat you to a Massage if that's ok with you?
Take care Ewen,

Lots of Love,

Fi, Andy & boys.xx

13 miles is quite a long one with walking boots! Hope the canal proves to be easy on the souls of your feet. Reminds me of Paul Simon's 'Diamonds on the soles of his feet' - would be useful as it's the hardest material!!
Stroll on
