Plans are proceeding apace!

I promised to report updates and there is an update to report. The return to England is set. Rooms in B&Bs have been booked  and airfare secured and paid for. Mike and I will board a flight in Providence on September 3, 2023 to arrive in Orton, Cumbria, UK on the afternoon of September 4. The next morning we will set out for the slightly-less-sleepy town of Kirkby Stephen and, from there, set out across the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors to the East. If all goes as planned, we will arrive on the shores of the North Sea at Robin Hood’s Bay on the afternoon of September 13.

Our journey last September was interrupted for compelling reasons but those same reasons have supplied the energy  to finish the trek. So this effort will be dedicated to the memory of Justin and will be a tribute to those he left behind, especially to his family and to those in my family who love him still. And extra resolve is supplied by the generosity of my own sister and brother-in-law who have so lovingly sponsored the return. Thank you.
