Lighthouse Walk

One of the fundamental elements of unFOLD is that we share experiences, and use these to help and inform our work. Today represented one of these events when four of our number took on the Beachy Head Lighthouse Challenge 2016. Initially started to fund painting of the Lighthouse; this now annual event is carefully timed to coincide with the right spring tides to allow walkers to circumnavigate the Lighthouse on foot, and raising money for local charities at the same time.

I picked up some more ‘pebbles with holes’ for my ever increasing collection, but pebbles dropped by the tides into little pockets in the rocks are always a happy find …

And then there is always one fellow walker that really knows how to do it in style (meet Tilly – unfortunately she doesn’t belong to any of us!) …
