My last full day of walking along the Offa's Dyke Path, from Monmouth down the Wye Valley to Chepstow
Distance: 28.5km; Ascent: 1120m; Heavy rain followed by sunshine and blustery showers; Solo
I woke early this morning to check the updated weather forecast: the heavy rain was now forecast to end around lunchtime, so therefore I didn't hurry to set off as there was a chance I might get some dry weather walking done in the afternoon! The boiler appeared to have been fixed overnight so I was actually able to have a shower before having breakfast and setting off walking in full waterproofs at around 9:30am. The first ascent of the day brought me to the deserted grounds of The Kymin, from where there were reasonable views back down to Monmouth.
