I'm taking 310,000 steps for SANDS during October
Today I walked to Sheringham the next town heading north along the coast from Mundesley near Cromer. A much colder and windier day today. Me and Blue set off across the beach passing crab boats with Blue dashing in and out of the Wave. We pass two villages East and West RuntoN, along the North Norfolk Coastal Path.
West Runton a few miles from Cromer had a major Music venue The West Runton Pavilion until 1986 when it was demolished
Many famous bands have played there Trex, The Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Budgie, Def leppard, Motorhead, Girl school, The Damned, The Clash to name but a few. I wish I had lived here when Cromer was on every tour poster and shirt.
I'm particularly disappointed to have missed Shag Conners and the Carrot Crunchers I must say.
Later the highest point in Norfolk comes into view Beeston Hill known as the Beeston Bump
It towers above us as we both scale its dizzy heights ("The tallest mountain in the world" apparently)
Home of the World Famous Norfolk Mountain Rescue Team I'm somewhat saddened to see not a sign of them.
We descend finally into Sheringham a very pretty little town which along with Cromer was initially just a small fishing village
I'm very cold by now and having covered 16,500 steps we call into the Dunstable Arms just for rehydration purposes of course. Blue enjoys his water and some bar snacks. Whilst I make do with a pint of real ale
Luckily Claire picked us up and I return home to a hot bath and a well earned rest
So in two days we have walked Thirty seven thousand and five hundred steps.
We are well on track
Thank you all for your continued donations
I've passed the £900 mark already which is amazing.
