Newport state of mind

Thanks to @chrisenorth and family for looking after me last night in Cardiff!

Bumped into the Cardiff 10k. Apparently there are a record number of runners out. Despite the rain.

Going over the Newport Transporter Bridge for the first time. Very excited. Very excited.

Crossed over the M4. A man in a car stopped and asked are you cycling the coastal route? "Yes", I replied with a chuckle. "Where did you start?" he continued. "At the top of Norway" I replied. There's a pause as he realises I didn't say somewhere in Wales. :)

Enjoying some sandwiches, made by Chris North, in a bus shelter by the A48.

I met Ed who, having just recently cycled from Cork to Limerick then Dublin with his sister, is cycling Lands End to John O'Groats.

Goodbye Wales. Diolch.

Now in England. I've now cycled in each of the four nations making up the UK.

Safe and sound at Sheena and Alistair's house. So great to catch up with them. They have provided me a fantastic meal.
