The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

East to West Photos: Day 2

21 March (0815-1440)
Distance: 15 miles (Tot: 35) (Great Yarmouth to South Walsham)
Weather: fair, some sun

A spot of trespass took us from our brief walk along the Weaver’s Way onto the south bank of River Bure. As it turned out, our passage along the south bank of the River Bure was also trespass, as the Public Right of Way was closed, but we didn’t find that out until eight miles later.

Those eight miles didn’t feature a single foot of ascent or descent as our route took us along the top of the sea-defence, but with the novelty (for me) of windmills, reeds and a few passing water-craft, I was happy.Day 1-6Remembering that we weren’t in a rush, Mick took the time to pause to address three donkeys. They were quite interested in whatever it was that he was telling them:Day 1-7

At Acle many moored craft were passed. We particularly liked the name of this one:

Day 1-8

At the end of the day it felt like the trip had really started. For the first time, we were happily ensconced in the tent (Susie Superlite), with a cup of tea in the making.Day 1-9

The original blog of the day can be seen here.
