Had a bad night to and fro from the toilet block. I don't know the cause, but I think doses of Immodium have sorted it. I was away at 7:30 with a cloudless blue sky and the heat already making itself felt. I had Worm's Head all to myself at 8:30; in case anybody doesn't know this is a Mecca for surfers, although today there was not much surf and no surfers.
The heat became overpowering. I stopped at the site shop at Hillend and stocked up on drinks, and after that I wAs having to stop and rest and drink every thirty minutes. I have a little thermometer which is part of my whistle and it registered 26 degrees.
At 1:15 I landed at the Geyhound Inn where Chris, the landlord, allowed me to pitch in the beer garden. I reckon I have done about ten or eleven miles, but that was enough today.
