Weight and Weather!

Just in case you are bored with blue skies and fluffy white clouds! Penzance yesterday.

To answer a few of your FAQs:

We do not have scales with us, but the waistbands are definitely loser. However, with the arrival of the wet stuff, there is a tendency to seek out places of refuge, which invariably include food. 

So far we have had 2 cream teas, a disappointing mass-produced affair at Clovelly visitor centre and a superb freshly made one at a  Christian Surfers Cafe called The Tube Station (think about that) at Polzeath. Still just the one excellent pasty, but we have sampled many of the great local tray-bakes. However, bacon butties top the list – yesterday’s in wet Penzance was far and away the best we’ve ever had ANYWHERE, we nearly missed out as it was a whopping £5.50 but just the one was more than enough for both of us.

The other thing we get asked about a lot is blisters – thankfully none so far, but wet feet are vulnerable so guess that also depends on the weather!

Still loving the experience, and we adapt the schedule according to the forecast as there is no point struggling along exposed cliffs, not only dangerous but missing out on the views. Yesterday’s “light rain” is due to change to “light drizzle” today with a bit of sun creeping round the cloud symbol tomorrow.

    You are doing SO well! Keep your spirits up – the end is in sight! You seem to be doing it so quickly!
    We were on the Ravenglass and Eskdale (Ratty) railway yesterday beneath a blue sky. And a boat trip on Ullswater.
    Thinking of you with love and prayers
