I was asked by ITV if I would like to do a sand draw for the opening of the show – Britain’s Favourite 100 Walks. The draw took place at sunrise on the beautiful Botany Bay beach in Broadstairs, Kent.

This part of the coast can produce stunning sunrises and this particular morning definitely did not disappoint. I would usually get straight to work on the draw, as it is a race against the tide, but I decided to sit and watch the sunrise due to how spectacular it was!

With it being a cold crisp morning I needed to get to work and warm myself up. For this particular draw, I was asked to do something a bit more free flowing so I decided that it would be good to have 100 Walks written within the draw, particularly as this walk came in at number 100 and it was the opener for the show. It was important that the draw was positioned in a way that when the filming was shot from the drone, it showed off the amazing back drop of the chalk stacks and the stunning coastline of Botany Bay.

During the draw I had the pleasure of meeting TV presenter Julia Bradbury, who joined me and helped finish off the draw whilst we spoke about sand art and this particular coastal walk and the reasons it made Britain’s top 100 walks.

The show was aired on Tuesday 30th of January at 19:30 and is definitely worth a watch.
