Cornish coast

By Stuart Lowe on

I left some rubbish between my tent inner and outer. Some creature has just been trying to eat it. A hedgehog?

Welcome to Cornwall

The Kilkhampton toilets ate 30p and wouldn't let me in. :(

After Bude. Heading south.

I've gained a new flag. #funwithflags

Not to be outdone by Devon, Cornwall just threw some 30% gradients at me. With wind. #NCN3

Padstow harbour in the rain.

Tomorrow I should complete Lejog (Land's End to John O'Groats) backwards (N to S) the long way round (via the west coast of Ireland).

Yesterday in better weather.

When I get home I'll be using Open Street Map to make a heatmap of every business with Atlantic in the name (and translations of Atlantic).

I expect the coastline to pop out.
