Day 6 - Thursday 25 July

23.7 miles from Perranuthnoe to Sennen Cove. A fantastic day!

Strange to be by myself today after company for the last 3 days.  I did however have Alfie for company for the first 9 miles, he was not very talkative though.  The first 9 miles were flat and I managed to run a fair bit.  I then passed our hotel and dropped Alfie back to Alan.  I walked literally all of the remaining miles, the terrain was quite rough and included some scrambling through granite boulders in places.  I was down to 25 minute miles a couple of times!  I don't know what Jo, Richard and Dave are going to think of my slow pace when they join me over the next few days - my running legs have definitely left me but I can stride out really well!

The scenery today was again stunning.  From Porthgwarra to just before Land's End in particular it was amazing - lovely granite cliffs, sandy beaches and clear torquise blue sea.  Places for lunch were not plentiful and I ended up with a sausage roll at Porthgwarra.

Alan met me at Sennen, he had scrambled down to a dog friendly beach with Alfie and then they had been to Cape Cornwall .

Looking forward to another lovely meal at the hotel this evening. I must stock up on fuel as tomorrow's walk to St Ives will be remote with literally nowhere for refreshments.  The scenery should be good though.
