Joined by our friend Kim, the walk took us down a muddy lane from the car park in Redwick, onto the sea wall and onwards towards the second Severn Bridge, inland and then across the M4 motorway – we looked down on the pay tolls for the bridge – then down an icy country lane shadowing the M4, we could hear but not see the traffic whizzing past – we swung past Rogiet and the Severn Tunnel and ventured as far as Caldicot. A nice coffee at a pop up craft shop in Caldicot, a couple of shops visited before the reliable Trevor takes us back to the Rose Inn for a swift half in front of a roaring fire.
We have now abandoned the two car option – where we drove one car to Point A then drove another to Point B then walked from B to A to recover car from point A, to then drive to point B to pick up the second car. Confused – so were we all….
We now drive to where we left off from the last walk and continue eastwards, when we finish for the day we call a cab.
Hats off to the taxi drivers of Newport and surrounds they have been great characters and prompt pick ups. Our taxi driver on the return leg was Trevor from Denzil Davies taxis, who took a shine to our Luce…as with the other taxi drivers very chatty about the local area .
