Arrival in Cornwall

Had a good drive down to Cornwall today. We're at Point, a small village on the Restronguet Creek, near Devoran. It's a lovely setting, especially when the sun is shining, as it is today.

We've had supper here with friends and are suitably mellowed. It all seems a bit unreal. No work for up to ten weeks. Tomorrow morning we shall drive down to Land's End, about 45 minutes away. After the obligatory photos are taken, I shall be abandoned there. Actually, that may not be quite true. I think that Chris, with whom we are staying tonight, may walk some of the distance tomorrow with me. The first mile or so is up to Sennen Cove, about the only coast walking on this long trek. After 40 miles walking, on Tuesday, I expect to be back at Point, before heading up to Truro and beyond.

The distance ahead to John o'Groats seems impossibly far and quite daunting. The key is, I think, just to take it one day at a time.


  1. Litehiker,

    Really been looking forward to tracking your progress. As you say, one day at a time, and make sure you enjoy!

    All good wishes,

    Trevor the Toad
