Not a lot I can really say in the way of a description other than five this week met at a car park just outside West Hythe . Then on a very hot sunny day we crossed the road , followed the canal into Hythe right next to the Hythe to Dymchurch railway station where stopped for a cuppa Then across the road following the canal to where it is close to the sea front . Here we followed the sea shore towards Folkstone , at the Folkstone end of the golf course we cut inland till we met the canal then ambled back to the car park 8.4 miles very tiring

Herne Bay to Reculver

Only 3 bodies available this week so once again it was a simple walk ie no map reading , that we have done many times over the past few years For this reason I only took a few photos
We met up at Herne Bay then simply followed the coast to Reculver . Here we stopped for a great sausage sarnie , brought by Lea followed by a very nice Jersey ice cream brought by Gordon so I got away with not paying .
Weather stayed hot and sunny and the walk was just under 6 miles .
Near the start of the walk looking back West to Herne Bay

From the same place looking East to the Towers in the distance

Every week they insist on hills or steps just to annoy me

Great sausage Sandwich , thanks Lea

Canadian Armed forces mount guard at Buckingham Palace

We arrived at Victoria and had a minor ticket hiatus,which involved opening the ticket barrier machine and sorting through the tickets,to retrieve the offender and get it rectified.
We walked on to view GCHQ building which isn't HQ at all.
Through to Cockpit Steps
and thence to St James's Park where we started the 7 mile walk.
We stopped for a nice coffee by the Serpentine and carried on to Albert memorial and Kensington gardens and returned via  slightly different route.
My train was about to depart and I made it with seconds to spare (or a 1 hour wait)
My fellow hikers left soon after.
Here's the route map and info
If you're "smarter than the average bear"you might be able to work out how I knew they were the
 special escort group?
