Day of rest

DAY 69: Portreath DAY OFF #3

Yep, howling wind outside the tent woke me around 6am, signalling the end of our Indian sunny spell. So much for a lie in on my day off! The plan had been to have a lazy morning around the campsite but the weather was just too bad so we decided to just pack up and get going… Stopping for breakfast in St Agnes at the eclectic Cornwall Cafe where we sat beneath the tea cups eating ham, egg and chips! Pip then dropped me off at the Portreath hotel near where I would be staying tonight. And it was here that spent most of my day off… drinking tea, coffee and eventually loading up on nachos, using the downtime to catch up on all my emails, and of course this blog 🙂

Funnily enough this pub seemed to have a conveyabelt of walkers, and cyclists coming through the door, all looking to shelter from the bad weather and warm up before setting off again. Including two cyclists doing JOGLE, and who were in fact leaving to cycle their last leg today to Lands End. I then chatted to two other ladies, cycling the coastal Cornish costal path and many other walkers that kept coming and going. With the bad weather continuing and everyone coming in cold and wet, I was thankful that this had turned out to be a day when I didn’t have to go anywhere! Except a few doors down to my Airbnb for the night, which I finally did by late afternoon and then enjoyed a lazy one… trying not to think of the two big days I still have ahead of me before I finally reach the end of the line…imageimageimage
