Day 59: Tuesday 14th June

A calm sort of day today.  20.5 miles to Penzance Station.  Weather was actually quite pleasant despite the forecast.  Not a great deal to report from the day.  I met Hazel for an early lunch and we met an ‘adventure cycling’ support crew who had 44 people riding from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 12 days.  And I thought our logistics were complicated.  The parent’s of one of the lady cyclists were very kind to donate £10 to Hazel.  Many thanks.

It was a thrill to see the sea and walk along the coastal path.  St. Michael’s Mount is always eye-catching.  Plenty of people wind surfing and kite surfing.  Hazel even managed to find a parking space and treat me to an ice cream.  Lovely.

The final surprise of the day came via a text message from an old colleague, on holiday and following the blog.  We met up with Kevin and Jane McPartlan for a nice dinner, and Kevin is going to walk the final morning with me to Land’s End.

Mixed feelings tonight as I contemplate the final walk tomorrow.
