Hoped to buy a fresh crab for lunch in Mousehole (real place) but there were no fish shops -or any shops there. Land's End was as tacky and commercial as I remember it, I resisted the temptation of paying £9.50 for a photo of me by the 'official' sign but snapped a few and will photo-shop me in! There is an official End-to-End book which I signed before passing the official Start, although the cliff path was the 'real' start.
Not only did I complete 50% of the End-2-End waypoints today but also 50% of the Cape-to-Cape points. I stared out to sea from Cape Cornwall (you can see Lana's artwork on my Hi-vis vest) - and saw the looming blackness of the approaching front.
As soon as I'd reached the YH it started to rain, hope it goes through whilst I sleep. The Highland cattle could have been in John O'Groats - but weren't.
At the YH were two wonderful grandmother sisters from Oxfordshire who were walking from Minehead to Poole (via Land's End) and another mad End-2-Ender who was being very civilised and taking 6 weeks - bliss!
Stats for today 48 miles , with about 4200 feet of assents.
Still raining - off to bed..
