Woke up to rain on the tent.Had slept well. Cloud made it still dark at 7am so another 15minutes listen to the radio. No wind so able to take the tent down with inner under outer so keeping it dry. Grain storage tanks are huge. Land bridge to Grain was locked. Decided to backtrack to Allhallows and miss isle of Grain.

Following roads and footpaths to Kingsnorth power station.Tarmac had closed the path for mining mineral. A dog walker explained a short cut to the Saxon Shore Way. 1.30pm, cafe, ummmmm, burger and fries went down a treat. Made a mess of putting on the ruck sack in front of the other customers. ,10 minutes along the path, high tide had breached the path so again I had to double back.

On the map I could not see any wild camping place until Gillingham. So booked RBS hotel for location. Only did 14 miles. GR 738696 walk total 52 miles.
