I have reached Alnmouth in Northumberland today and my distance is now 569 miles. Yesterday I stayed in Teesside and visited my Aunt Barbara who was 100 years old earlier this year. The journey after I left her took me through Tyneside where we had our first ferry crossing. Badger, I am happy to say, was not seasick.
Northumberland is one of the most beautiful counties in England and I have been looking forward to my travels through here. Tomorrow I head up the coast to Berwick on Tweed.
