Dan, Dan the Rasta Kayak Man

After work yesterday the sun shone so I set out for a quick seven miler to Witches and back. I’d noticed a tent actually on the pebbles a few times but hadn’t been close enough to get a photo of it. I figured someone was enjoying a bit of wild camping. Yesterday I met the owner of the tent and what a lovely guy he is.

His name is Dan Chapman and he is attempting to kayak around the British coastline in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Society in memory of his nan.  You can read about it and if you wish you can donate on his just giving page here.

His facebook page is here

He seems a well grounded guy and just really happy in his life and the challenges he faces ahead. Best of luck to him!

Good luck out there dude!

It was a beautiful spring day and the beach was was a beautiful as ever.

Dan also gave me a horseshoe he found at the clifftop near the ladders. I’ll hang onto it for luck and when you finish the trek you can have it back!

Hell of a horse – I placed it around a “normal” horseprint and it surrounds it!
