Today I walked along the John Muir Way and other paths and local roads. A few miles out from a village called Coldingham a car pulled over. The girl driving it asked about my walk and made a donation. Her name was Trudi and it turned out that her family ran a B&B just down the road and offered me a room for the night at no charge as a contribution to my walk! Fantastic! After I got some food in a lovely pub called The New Inn in Coldingham Trudi came to collect me. Her family run a place called www.woolfish.com which is essentially a knitting retreat! We sat in front of the fire and chatted away (I WASN'T knitting) but another guest was and told me all about Lindisfarne, also known as Holy Island where I plan to visit in a few days. A lovely evening!
