Today has been much shorter in comparison to yesterday-only around 10 miles. Tonight I’m staying in Chawton where Jane Austen lived from 1809 onward. The village is also full of lovely thatched cottages she would have known.
This afternoon it was a walk into Alton and back to have a steam train trip on the Mid Hants Railway back to Alresford and return. Another one ticked off my 60@60 list. My carriage was even built in 1960!
Despite these good things and some lovely places and moments (like Rob whom I walked with yesterday collecting my walking sticks from where I left them) it has been hard going at times to keep positive as my feet have sore and challenging to walk on. It’s harder on your own. Made me think of so many in our persecuted family who are isolated and need our support as they battle on in very hard circumstances as well as what it means to walk with them.
