Just before we began the walk to reach the halfway point, we had the
youngest person yet join us on our walk Leia aged 11 months!
The day which included our halfway point at Flamborough Lighthouse was dry with sunny intervals. Liz, curate at Flamborough church walked with us from Bridlington and we were joined at Serwerby by Tony. Along the cliffs Peter (vicar at Flamborough) with his dog Keeper walked along with us.
At the Lighthouse we were joined by Mhee who had walked from Norfolk to see a puffin at Bempton and do various other challenges in aid of Macmillan nurses and Gill, Tony, Pam, Beryl and her dog Skippy, Barbara, Peter, Christine and Andrew, all from Flamborough Church. Other interested and interesting people we met on the way included: Margaret, Cynthia and Charles at the RNLI shop at South Landing, the Henry family, Bob at Danes Dyke and Michael at North Landing
The next day we were given a great welcome at the church on the Headland as we joined them for their morning worship. Thank you to Rainbows Caitlin, Abi and Lucy who assisted our presentation and to all at St Oswald’s Flamborough.
Later in the week, another great welcome awaited us from the RSPB centre at Bempton.
This is the famous Bird Sanctuary with the mainland’s largest gannet colony. Puffins, guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes were also in evidence. Our visit there co-incided with a visit from Hymers School in Hull and we were able to eavesdrop on the very interesting information given to the pupils by one of the RSPB wardens Peter and to get to know a little some of the other volunteers Sylvia, Nick, Adele and Johnny. Just a little further along the cliff amidst swooping gannets we met the Cottingham walkers and the “Frank and Dorothy” group who were doing one of John’s “Alphabetting” walks!
All in all it has been a week for meeting people!
