I don’t think anyone has ever tried this; at least not the way I’ve done it- hey I’m a trendsetter! But how can I measure the mileage? It was about Three Miles from Spike Island to Hale, yet 7 Kilometres from Otterspool to Pier Head, but the entire coastline from Hale to Garston was just a very, very long way!
I didn’t stop along the prom, just kept going, taking the occasional pic. Had a sit down for a few minutes by the Festival Gardens, but kept to a brisk pace, even though I was footsore, aching and tired, I managed to get to Albert Dock and Pier Head just before 6pm, making it the longest day for a hike, 8 and half hours in total.
I found refuge in the Pumphouse Tavern. A good pint, a Gourmet burger (2 sets of Beef, Cheese and Bacon!) with chips, then a Sticky toffee pudding with Ice Cream- Bliss!!
And after the ordeal I’d been through to get there, I’d say it was thoroughly worthwhile.
Now for the next Long Hike!!
