Days 1 to 4, Penzance to St Ives.

This has been far harder than I thought it would be, my training walks on the Mlaverns didn’t prepare me for this type of walking. Its rocky, steep, slippy paths up and down cliffs. It is also stunningly beautiful every single step of the way. I’ve spent more time just looking at the view than I have walking. I’m knackered, sun burnt (or sandblasted by the wind, I can’t tell which), my legs ache and my shoulders hurt from the rucksack. And I’m loving it all, I wouldn’t change any of it. I’ve just dumped my bag at a campsite, so I can even have a shower later. It might even be warm water.
