Onwards and Upwards - From Port Isaac to Padstow

Hi Everyone,

I'm walking again today which is a great relief. The blister is doing OK so no time to lose. Will miss the folks I met at Port Isaac though - they were so friendly and helpful. The hotel owner used to be the drummer & lyricist for Dexy's Midnight runners - ahh......good ol' 80's music! Brings back lots of great memories! He was really interesting to talk to - really nice fella.

Walked from Port Isaac to Padstow with Maria Browning today - it was to great to have such good company. We made great time & the weather was gorgeous - got the legs out today as well! - didn't frighten any wildlife with them which was good!
Some of the coves today were the best I've seen yet - the water was really clear & looked so inviting. I was so tempted to dip in.

Padstow was packed when I arrived. Had some Rick Stein take away fish & chips, they were fab, chips were genuinely the best I've ever had.

Thanks to all for the texts, e-mails & other messages of support - really love getting them so much. Had some from people I've met along the way which is great. Some from Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Norway & Sweden!

Next stop is Mawgan Porth. It's about 18 miles but not a hard leg in terms of hills and valleys. Jen Julian & her Mum are joining me for part of the leg - looking forward to meeting up with them.

Well.....Have a good day all. Will post again soon:-)

Remember: George is walking all this way in the hope he will raise £10,000 to undertake important neurological research at the AECC. The research will hopefully help to shape and develop chiroopractic knowledge in this area, so it would make a massive difference to George and to the chiropractic profession if you were to sponsor him.

You can sponsor George quickly and easily online by visiting so please please please show him your support! Remember, every little bit helps, so any pennies you can find will really help George and his quest!

Thank You.
