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.
