North Water Bridge to Kinnaber Links
The last morning dawned with the pitter patter of rain. To the last, the weather was alternating between glorious sunshine and rain. My orignal plan was to finish at Tangleha’. However, the tea shop had closed in St Cyrus and JJ promised a sumptuous repast at the garden centre near Kinnaber Links. This proved irresistible to a group of us, so off we trooped with the prospect of food dangled in front of us.
Mick and I struck out in the lead. It was a straightforward road walk to Hillside. The weather wasn’t too bad with some light showers. The cafe was very good and suitably refreshed, our weary band made it through the dunes of Kinnaber Links and to the sea.
It was lovely to finish with a crowd of Challengers. Photos were taken and congratulations dispensed. I think this year was tougher than last year, mainly because the weather was more unsettled and the almost constant cold wind, which, at times, was quite sapping. However, overall, it was a very enjoyable crossing and a very social one. I’ll post some further thoughts at a later date.
