Day 41- Lifford Lock to Edgbaston – 5 miles

Wednesday 2nd March 2016 – 420 miles
Dave’s cousin gave us a lift back to Lifford Lock – thanks Diana.

We started walking along the canal until we came to a sign leading us off the canal and onto the Rea Valley cycle path.

We enjoyed a lovely walk alongside the river Rea. As we walked,quite a few cyclists rode by and wished us luck and two runners, Rachel and Chris stopped to ask us about our walk and wished us success. We could hear the steady hum of traffic as we walked along the path – trees and grassland on one side and maybe factories and houses on the other.

The path eventually led to Cannon Hill Park.

By that time the rain had started to get a bit persistent so we decided to stop and have a cuppa at The Garden Tea Room for a coffee.

The rain didn’t stop so we decided to crack on and we arrived at Dave’s sister’s around 11am. About half an hour later it started to snow so we were very happy to have finished our walk for the day. Only a short walk but we enjoyed a good rest.
