Acclimitised tonight to the Cornwall latitude with a walk along the river Fal with Max the labrador after carbo loading on tuna and pasta bake courtesy of ASDA.
Firs night in the motorhome in St Gluvias church car park, next to the graveyard (on an incline), Willard a bit worried about getting the willies !

Had we been cycling around the world we would have needed a trailer to accommodate all the equipment !
