Saturday in Padstow

Saturday, first day off and really enjoying the rest day. it was dads 65th birthday yesterday so we met up with friends and family for dinner at the Cornish Arms just outside Padstow. Im going to leave on Monday morning and head up towards Hartland Point in North Devon (approx 60 miles) The hills and shocking weather over the last few days have been quite exhausting and im hoping its going to get a little better in the coming days/weeks. I cycled yesterday with a good friend of mine Mat W S from Padstow and im currently staying with his brother Rupe on Stepper Point.

Thanks to everyone who's following the trip on the spot tracker on the site, Ive had loads of emails, comments etc ...such an amazing bit of kit!

Finally big thank you to the owner of The Royal Dart Hotel in Kingswear who kindly donated the money we spent on wine/champagne on the eve of the trip to the charity... Best gormet burgers and ribs in the South West!

Here are a couple of pics from the last week ~

Whitsand Bay, Just over the border into Cornwall

Charlestown, South Coast of Cornwall ~ amazing tall ships!

Windy and wet Godrevy Island Lighthouse, North Cornwall Coast

I had to post the cover of this amazing Devon Cycling map I found dated 1911. I like the way it says 'Showing Danger Hills' at the top

cheers for now.
