Rainham to Sittingbourne along the Saxon Shore Way

Rainham to Sittingbourne Walk

 

START OF WALK:  Drove to Sittingbourne Rail Station , park the car for the whole day, approx. £6.00, caught a train to Rainham (had to wait 20mins we just missed one whilst we were in the carpark).  Walked from Rainham Rail Station along Station Road towards the seafront and Otterham Quay to meet the Saxon Shore Way.

WEATHER:  11-14C Cloudy, some sunshine, Wind NW 9mph changing to ESE 9mph

WALK DESCRIPTION:

DISTANCE:  17.95 miles (28.89kms) walk was recorded by MapMyWalk App on my android mobile.  Previously I was using Runkeeper App, and up until March it was fine, but after they did an update everything went haywire.  Not happy.

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 5yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
