Over the sea to Donaghadee

We took the ferry across from Stranraer to Belfast this morning – courtesy of Stena Lines who kindly sponsored our travel across the Irish Sea.

We were met off the ferry by fellow cyclists Dave and Mark. Then, after a brisk 24 mile ride along the coast in the sunshine (!) we arrived in the historic harbour town of Donhagadee and a great welcome from several local Rotary Clubs – with a £600 cheque for ShelterBox!

We’re being put up here by Pier 36 – a great little B&B and restaurant that looks right out over the harbour.

Over the last few days we’ve collected a few more donations for ShelterBox thanks to Rotary Clubs in Castle Douglas and Stranraer. We’ve also added a few more miles to our total…

Tomorrow is going to be a landmark day – we reached 9,970 miles arriving in Donaghadee so only 30 more to our target of 10,000!

Carolyn’s expecting champagne. Not sure how easy that’ll be to find but we’ll definitely be celebrating.
