WALES – CAM PEDWARN
After a very tranquil rest stop in the woods for two nights, I follow the Sustrans route 8 towards Caernarfon and its famous Castle.
The route follows the Porthmadog railway line to Caernarfon.
WALES – CAM DAU
Pontsticill Forest 9th June 2014
After what turned out to be a rather pleasant night considering the hassle to start with early evening … broken tent, midges etc..
The forest has been good to me though, nothing better than that protective feel of a dense canopy.
The air is damp, but one gets that feeling of ‘life’ from it. Too many people complain about the weather. THE weather brings life … SIMPLE!
WALES – CAM UN
As with any departure from Padstow, I’ve a pleasant cycle along the Camel Trail towards Bodmin Parkway railway station. This time, an appointment with the Penzance to Paddington (London) train.
First, just the small obstacle of a fallen tree … not so small! No going over, no going round, so remove the panniers, drag them and bike under.
Fortunately the summer is looking like a good’un and long may it continue!
From the Severn Beach end-of-the-line station stop I’ve a pleasantly flat cycle to the Severn Bridge.
Cornwall II – Stage 2
Chygarkye Woods 21th May 2014
I leave what has to be a superb wild-camping spot in Chygarky Woods. The day is bright and dry. Dry always been the key word!
I don’t have to far to go towards my rest day at the YHA Coverack.
Loving the little nested cottages tucked away amongst the Cornish lanes.
