With 12 carriages taking part, forecasts of rain left Cedric concerned about conditions out on the bay.
On the day, however, the weather was fine. At one point the Duke lost sight of the route markers in the milling crowd and Cedric had to put him right. I had to tell him!
Once Cedric got him to slow down, the carriage procession could take in the sweeping panorama of the bay. Another memorable crossing was in July, , when Cedric was asked to guide a fundraiser — accompanied by 17 geese. They must have thought I was Mother Goose!
Now 76, he remains passionate about his job. He and his wife, Olive, share their home at Guides Farm with beloved dogs, a goat, cattle, ponies and hens.
