A very windy night last night. We woke to scattered clouds and sunshine and it stayed windy all day, with some long sunny spells.
A couple of mini milestones today. The first achieved before we had left the campsite – reaching 100 miles.
The second came late in the day when we crossed the border from Cornwall into Devon. Lynn’s home county and Steve’s adopted county for the past 38 years, he still can’t speak the language. No signs to mark the county boundary on the minor road we were on, but there was a NCT commemorative stone at the border.
We followed NCT3 for most of the day, the exception was a short stretch across Davidstow Moor Airfield a World War 2 airbase for the RAF and Canadian Airforce. More recently used for microlight flying.
Near Davidstowe we passed a livestock auctioneers which was busy with cattle and sheep trucks going in and out.
A little further down the road a pick up stopped level with us and the farmer behind the wheel said ‘Ewe han’t sin no cows has ee. Thase escaped from back of market’. Once Lynn had translated for Steve we both answered ‘No’. The road was busy with search parties. This ‘incident’ meant Lynn had to endure Steve whistling and humming the theme tune from ‘The Great Escape’ for the rest of the day. No burgers this evening.
Camping tonight at Noteworthy Farm, too far to walk to Holsworthy after a long day, so we are cooking at the tent for the first time
