Alex meets a Princess

Our intrepid charity walker has gotten himself all the way to Wales and who should he bump into but Princess Anne? Did they discuss theories about the appropriate derivation of political authority? I’m thinking they didn’t. We last checked in on Alex when he’d just left Cornwall. His next stop was Clovelly, and very lovely…

Alex hits a low near Looe

Loneliness, the landscape and fatigue have caught up with Alex. The support of his friends and interested people on Facebook brought him out of it, and the help of local people such as those at the Driftwood B&B (click for map): Oh and we’ve also nearly made it to £1000 raised for RNLI!! Thank you…
