Fridays late blog and today

Friday started of with the now usual routine of shaking ice off of the tent and walking a few miles before breakfast, this time was a bit unusual as breakfast was eaten at the highest point on bodmin moor at the summit of the unfortunately named Brown Willy,
 superb views all around with the moors to our selves we headed east blazing our own trail to the roads that linked us to launceston.
 this road section was again through tiny country lanes in beautiful sunshine and that gentle breeze keeping us cool, dinner was had at a pub (The Rising Sun Inn) enroute consisting of a nice bangers and mash followed by sticky toffee pudding.mmmmmm the last few miles saw us to our destination the thornbank guesthouse where we are now( Saturday) chilling out for our rest day.
 Pleasant town with a nice castle ruin in the middle, just had lunch here and am looking forward to doing nothing for the rest of the day ;)


  1. Whoa Bro :) Well done for making it to the first rest day - I'm sure you're all set for succeeding with the rest of the challenge now :)

    I'm trying to plot to drop by one weekend when you have a rest day, but that's looking a few weeks away yet, so don't start panicking yet :) I'll give you plenty of warning.

    Hope you got a really lovely rest today - it's been gorgeous weather here and hopefull it's been the same with you two too.

    Love to you both.
