the first hour and half were a nightmare. If you want to experience it, drink some epson salts, put your water proofs on, jump in the sea, then stick pins in your eyes.
Drank and ate small amounts in the morning and felt much better by lunch.
Had a roast lunch at a pub called the elliot - great food, and the landlord donated ten pounds to our charities.
pros of the day - we got here.
cons of the day - i was ill. It was as wet as it could be. It was cold. I had to cycle without my glasses as it was raining so much.
Are we having fun - too right we are.
