I’m still at Lantic Bay – the weather forecasts continue to look poor for the next few days. It’s day 72 of my trip today – both John and Joe paddling last year were finished by now, and I’m barely a quarter of the way round !
Despite the forecasts, I keep finding myself tempted to “go for it” whenever it looks calm in the bay, but a short walk up onto the cliffs where I’m exposed to the wind, or the occasional sight of a passing yacht being tossed about convinces me that I’m probably making the right decision to wait on the beach.
While pacing up and down the beach, I started collecting rubbish into a pile. This made it look even worse, so I crushed the plastic bottles and I went into Polruan to buy some rubbish bags …
… then carried it all back into town and found a new home for the fender. There is still some rubbish on the beach that I missed, but I think it looks a bit better now, and 99 is not 100 !
