Today was a day of two halves for the D2D team.  We started our 800 mile adventure this morning, leaving the cliffs of Dover in glorious sunshine under blue skies. We then enjoyed the rest of the morning cycling along quiet lanes through the Kent countryside.

Unfortunately the afternoon brought a change in weather and garden of England quickly became more like a big pond, receiving a months rainfall in one afternoon! Battling through the rain and endless puddles our team bravely made it to the Thames estuary.  The original plan was to cross on the Tilbury ferry but due to the weather we had to opt for Mrs. Sutterby’s bus instead!  We are now heading to the campsite to dry out and then the pub to get fed!  60 miles covered today and hopefully we’ve had all the rain for the entire journey.

Fingers crossed for a dry day tomorrow.
