We would like to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and support. Thank you also for the cards and gifts that have been handed in to reception. These have been passed on to Mat who has been overwhelmed by your kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.
Together with friends I have been “training” for the Camino by walking on Dartmoor, walking sections of the South West coastal path, and selected circular walks in East Devon. My kit list is sorted, flights are booked, and feet have thicker skin. I fly to Biarritz, and then by bus and train to St Jean Pied de Port which is the starting town to the north of the Pyrenees.
If anyone might be interested, a charity donation site has been set up by my family. The charity is FORCE
which seems very appropriate in the circumstances as well as my wife working
there as a cancer care counsellor.
