Meet the team #3 Jean Brown
Jean was brought up spending all of her holidays in the outdoors and has never looked back. Before becoming a keen sea-kayaker Jean knew the UK and other parts of the world though the eyes of a climber.
This has made kayaking trips to Norway and Shetland, in particular, all the more interesting. A keen spirit of adventure makes this journey an exciting prospect.
This blog describes the planning and progress of a kayaking trip that crosses northern England from the Irish Sea to the North Sea. The trip will start on the 14th of March 2009 near Crosby at the Mouth of the Mersey Estuary. At Runcorn the route will follow a historic trading route through Manchester along inland waterways across the Pennines before reaching the Humber Estuary at Goole. On the Humber the route passes Hull and finishes at the historic lifeboat community at Spurn Head on the North Sea Coast.
