I walked up to the Pier at Walton on the Naze and met Margaret Andrews and her son William. Margaret is the support services manager for the Clacton office of Alzheimer's Society and William is a member of the lifeboat shore crew at Walton. Together we walked to Frinton on Sea where they left me and I would meet up with Margaret further down the coast that day in Holland on Sea. There I was met by a wonderful 'reception committee' outside a beach hut owned by a gentleman called Terry. Terry is a supporter of the local branch of Alzheimer's Society and they were all there to greet me along with a banner and balloons. It really was a special occasion. We had tea and cakes and a tour of Terry's hut which was fitted with a kitchen! Afterwards I only had to walk a few hundred metres more to reach Clacton on Sea where I checked into a B&B and promptly fell asleep for a couple of hours!
