Day 1 Lands End to Penzance
Day started well with a great journey down here, arrived at 11.30, ahead of schedule. After something to eat, the photo by the signpost (£12.50) and collecting a stone to deliver to Scotland, I left at 12.30. Within 1 minute of leaving the first problem happened, my new camera, brought especially for the walk started eating batteries. A new set of batteries then only lasting 2 photo's. This has been rectified by lots of abuse and a new camera purchased at Penzance. Walk went well 19.5km in only 4 hours, with the exception of having 3 dogs bark at me. For those who don't know I am not confident around dogs and they always target me. During the course of this blog I will count the amount of time that satan's animal bark at me. No road kill observed today so little for dinner tonight. So, you could say I'm really off now, so would you be after a days walk in the sun!!!! Talking about the weather the blue sky's with no vapour trails were brill, however the Scilly Isle helicopter was a regular visitor overhead.
