Getting a little tired!

September 6th 2013 - Day 6 Trefonen to Llandegla 24 miles

The weather began to close in and waterproofs came out! and we got lost!

Tonight we stayed in an Eco pod
I had very little room to unpack my things and had to sleep a tad to close to the boys!

7th September 2013 -  Day 7 Llandegla to Bodfari 17.5 miles 

 We spent the day trying to keep ahead of the dark rain clouds so walked at a hard fast pace. Got our first sightings of the sea in the distance.

 A village fete day with lots of scarecrows

8th September 2013  - Day 8 the final day! 15 miles to Prestatyn.

Our final day!

Just a short hop skip and a jump to Prestatyn today.
We started off with a late breakfast as we had plenty of time to walk 8 miles to a village called Rhuallt and meet up with Lisa the founder of greyhound Gap. Lisa and a few other brave gappers then joined us to walk  the final 8.5 miles with the boys.

 almost there
The official end of Offa's Dyke walk on the beach at Prestatyn

 Walking the beat boys, Steve, Ned with Lisa and Marc Founder of walking the beat

 Lots of lovely people from greyhound gap and their hounds came to meet us

 and as we left the beach a beautiful rainbow, maybe all the bridge babies showing their support

I have had the most exciting adventure with the boys, walked 188 miles and help them reach their target of £2,600 towards greyhound gaps kennel fund!

So now I have to make a quick dash to york and then get ready to fly to Australia on the 15th September, what exciting times.

Lots of love from Scarlett Bear xxx
